Are you trying to run the windows version of 3.1? If so, try the DOS 
version instead (however note that as far as I am aware this will not 
work in 64-bit versions of windows 10).

If you really absolutely need version 3.1 and later versions won't work 
even with an appropriate #version 3.1 directive added to their output 
files then you may have to set up a virtual machine with windows 95 or 
something and run it in there. It might even be worth booting a live 
linux ISO and seeing if the Linux 3.1 console version works.

If all else fails you could try building a new console exe from the source.
