16 bit, 64 bit, Dosbox, vmware, Windows, workstation
So as many know Microsoft did not include any support for 16 bit applications in it’s 64 bit windows Operating Systems. What does this mean if you want to have a 64 bit OS but still need to run 16 bit applications? Well you have a couple of choices.
You could certainly use a product like VMware workstation or HyperV or such to run a virtual machine within your system that uses a guest OS that can run the software. This is a great solution but not a free solution.
If you are looking for a free solution I can recommend using an application called DosBox (http://www.dosbox.com/). This runs great inside my Vista 64 box and is completely free. I highly recommend it.
