So I decide to post it in SCT to everyone. Here is the info. Windows 3.1 Thai Edition The Valuesoft Vision Co. Ltd. 15th Floor, Central Chidlom Tower 22 Soi Somkid, Ploenchit Rd. Bangkok 10330 Tel. 66-2-254-7088 Fax. 66-2-256-0310 I don't know that you can get it in the U.S. I got my copy in Bangkok by trading in my English version of Windows 3.1. The upgrade price is 1250 Bath plus 7% VAT. You will need to bring all the diskettes of the English version for the upgrade. The software comes in 8 diskettes and a Thai manual. I have been using it since last August without any problem and the Thai characters look real nice. From: Randall Jones (rjones@igc.apc.org) Date: 24 Jan 94 12:24 PST I've just ordered the Thai version of Windows 3.1. I ordered the full package, not the upgrade. It cost $190.00. (I haven't received it yet but I'm looking forward to trying it out.) I ordered from THE IDEA in California (Los Angeles, I think). Their phone number is (213) 628-2801. This was the only vendor MicroSoft Help could suggest for the Thai Windows in the U.S. ------------------------------ Subject: B.1) Domestic computer market Data compiled from Prachachart Thurakit, Siam Post and Bangkok Post.
