vDosPlus XyWrite installers
NOW FEATURING vDosPlus XyWrite installer Centennial Edition (version 5.01 based on vDosPlus Summer '17 build 2017.10.17 by Wengier Wu). This installer supports Windows 2000 or later.
vDosPlus is a premier virtual runtime environment for running non-gaming DOS applications under modern 64-bit as well as 32-bit Windows. The vDosPlus XyWrite installer bridges the gap between DOS XyWrite or NotaBene and the Windows environment. You supply your copy of DOS XyWrite or NB in a folder on your Windows computer and the installer takes care of the rest. The solution has advanced display support (scalable window size, crisp TrueType-based fonts, mouse wheel scrolling, transparency, etc.), bidirectional clipboard support, and print preview of XyWrite output as PDFs that can be printed on any Windows printer. The installer contains ready-to-use XyWrite/NB printer files for Letter and A4 paper sizes. Thanks to vDosPlus, using any DOS word processor is again possible. If you are not into XyWrite, vDosPlus can even run WordPerfect, WordStar, or even the Y2K-crippled MS-Word 5.0. Please note that this installer is only for DOS XyWrite-based products including XyWrite 3+ and 4, NotaBene 3 or later, and IBM/XyQuest Signature.
NEW DOWNLOAD There is even a separate documentation package for vDosPlus XyWrite version 5.01 to supplement a Mac installation which the installer does not support. This package has all the help documents, supplied XyWrite print files, and icons without the executables. No support for installing on a Mac is provided. You can use the vDosPlus Mac system provided by Edward Mendelson to install XyWrite.

A virtual environment for running Windows 3.1x on 64-bit Windows by Edward Mendelson: Win31DOSBox
An easy way to run Windows 3.1 programs. Automated installation: you just supply the installation files of a Win 3.1x version which uses the Latin alphabet and run the installer.
Clipboard and printer support and easy access to your files via the host system. A real breakthrough for running legacy Windows 3.1x programs. Highly recommended.
