Psion Series 3 - Model 3a

Emulators

 

Psion released a PC emulator, S3AEMUL.EXE, advising that "the intended purpose of S3AEMUL is as an unsupported tool for software developers. The README.TXT file distributed with the program states that "S3aEMUL will not run in a DOS box in Windows" and "S3aEMUL will not run under Windows NT or O/S 2" (this also applies to Windows XP, Windows 7, etc.).

The emulator can be installed in a virtual machine under, for example, VMWare, including the free (for personal use) VMPlayer, or the freeware DOSBox MS-DOS emulation. The emulator was originally available for download from Psion's own, now defunct, website, David Kimberlin-Wyer pointed me to a copy of the emulator in Gareth Saunders Psion website, on his Psion emulators page. I have also made the download available on this page.
