How can install zoombinis on window 7


You should navigate to the setup file on the disc, right click, select 'Properties', choose the 'Compatibility' tab, select the 'Run in compatibility mode for:' checkbox, select 'Windows 98/Windows ME'. Then run the setup program.

Alternatively, you could right click on the setup file and choose the 'Troubleshoot Compatibility' option.

The problem here is that you likely have Windows 7 x64 which has little support for 16 bit programs. You may be able to run your program in Windows Virtual PC (XP mode) if you installed it, but the program will likely run rather slowly.

If the solutions I have provided do not work, then I hate to say this, but you are out of luck.

Runing windows vista body works 6 won't run it seems to be 16 bit program how can i run 16 bit program on a 64 bit oparating system


Yes, that is an annoying issue. the only solution appears to be that BodyWorks needs to offer a 64 bit program. MANY people are going to be running into this as their equipment fails and gets replaced.

How to solve the problem"*.exe


This error is generally an indication that the written program isn't designed to be run in the 32 bit windows environment, the program is corrupted, or an error occured while trying to run the program. It is generally due to an older program being run within windows.

The newer windows versions are mostly 32 bit platforms. Some of the old programs from windows 95 and 98 eras won't work because they are 16 bit programs. Examples may include older programs with a .com extension (which will bring up this error message), or old versions of .exe's written for 16 bit environments.

If the program you are attempting to run is a recent program (came with your version of windows XP or later) then it could be an error at execution or the program is corrupted. If the program is written by a major brand and is relatively new, contact the program's technical support number for help.

If you suspect a program error, try and obtain another copy of the program. Uninstall the current copy of the program, restart your computer, then install a fresh copy. If the error continues after doing this, then contact the program manufacturer's technical support number.

If the program you are using is one of the programs from within windows, (from the system 32 folder for example, and include notepad.exe, msconfig.exe, or other programs that can be selected and run from within this folder) do NOT remove or copy over the program. Some of the programs within the windows sub-directories are older 16bit programs, not designed to run within the 32bit platform. It is recommended to NOT remove any of these programs from the windows sub directories.

Running graphics c++ programs in TC++


TC++ is 16-bits and 16-bits programs are not fully Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 compatible. Windows emulates the older 16-bits environment using "NVTDM", but direct hardware access is (by design) still not possible (which is - besides unhandled program exceptions - the main cause for such error messages).

The only - structural - solution is to get a more modern 32 bits C++ compiler instead of TC++. You can find a list of free 32 bits Windows compilers here: http://www.thefreecountry.com/compilers/cpp.shtml

You might have to adapt the existing C++ code a little to the new compiler you choose.

When you really want to continue using TC++ you could use try the free "DOSBox" emulator (which has pretty accurate DOS emulating,. much better than Windows itself) or create a virtual machine with DOS or Windows 3.11 ...

Turbo c not working....16 bit ms-dos subsystem error


There have been several changes in the way programs work. Windows xp does not
allow direct access to hardware resources to protect system integrity.
However you can try a few things

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314106
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=165214
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=324767

Generaly speaking this error shows up when a program tries to use a
command.com file from an incompatible version of windows.

Alternatively login in safemode and use. it ll work fine. rate this!!

16 Bit Vs 32 Bit Systems


You can't convert the program on the disk from 16 bit to 32 bit. However the 32 bit versions of Windows are supposed to include legacy support for 16 bit applications. What version of WIndows are you running? What's the exact errormessage you're getting?

However, I would recommend that you use a virtualization product called DOSBox. DOSBox is free software that runs older 16 bit applications on Windows (And other operating systems such as Linux) very well:

Program Vista Home Error Message: config.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and windows applications.


Hi VincB49,

Without getting too technical what you have is trying to run a 16-bit program in an 32-bit environment. When a 16-bit trys to run in windows 2000 it runs in windows nt dos environment, anyway, try this: Click Start>control panel>system>Advanced- click on "Environment Varialbles"> In the user name for User_Name list click "TMP" and click edit> In the Variables Value box type:

c:\winnt\temp and click OK three times, close control panel. I hope this helps you, if not, hit me back, we have other options i.e. pathway applications.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7
