How can I run 16 bit programs in Windows 7 64-bit?
Hello Ronin Loki,
16-bit programs can't run on 64-bit windows 7 natively. As ITKnowledge24 stated, if you have Windows 7 professional or ultimate you may be able to run in XP-mode. XP-mode is 32-bit XP sp3.
You might also be able to use your DBase III using a DOS emulator such as DOSBox (it's free):http://www.windowsreference.com/free-utilities/dosbox-free-opensource-dos-x86-emulator-for-windows-linux/ I believe, they have versions for 64-bit and should be able to run your program.
Hope this helps.
