Windows for Workgroups 3.1 Beta 1 is the earliest available build of Windows for Workgroups 3.1, which was shared on 26 March 2021.[1]

This build calls itself both Winball and Sparta, the codenames of Windows for Workgroups 3.1.

"Windows 3.2" references[edit | edit source]

WINBALL.SYS in this build has a version number of 3.2.026. It also contains a dialog claiming to identify the build as "Microsoft Windows Sparta v3.2.026 Pre-beta version". It's possible 3.2 was the originally planned product version of Windows for Workgroups, before it was changed back to 3.1. Long file name support also appears to be implemented in this driver; there is significantly more code and functions for this support than in later builds.
