I have an old program that ran on all Windows platforms from Windows 95 up to Windows 7. When the free upgrade to Windows 10 came out, I of course tried it and for the most part liked it, so I stayed with it. Recently I found out that 2 of my older programs are not compatable with 64-bit. One program, Paperport, was due for an upgrade. Compatible and runs great. The other, Cakewalk Pyro through broderbund is no longer available. I have tried the compatibility settings all the way down to Windows 95 with no luck. Does anyone know of a spell or elixer that will allow this program to run? Here are the error messages I receive when I try to load the program.
Unsupported 16-Bit Application
The program or feature
“\??\C:\PROGRA~2\Cakewalk\CAKEWA~1\SetupMCM.exe” cannot start or run due to incompatibity with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.
(The misspelled 'incompatibility' was copied just as it was written in the error message).
