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.

SOURCE: can I use Learn to

According to the company's website (http://www.amazon.com/Learn-to-Speak-German-8-1/dp/system-requirements/B00005TQ1E/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&n=229534&s=software), it works on Windows up to XP. It doesn't list Vista or Windows 7 as options. And it looks like others have had the same problem (http://www.fixya.com/support/t5241472-learn_speak_german_version_8_0 and http://www.fixya.com/support/t514069-let_learn_speak_german_8_0_run_windows). However if you have the Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise version of Windows 7 you might be able to run it in compatibility mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx or http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows).
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Zoombini's Logical Journey won't start up

If the program produces an error right after hitting the Play button, I had success by launching the file Zoombinis Logical Journey.exe in compatability mode using Window 98 / ME and 640 x 480 resolution. The shortcut that is created during install points to TLCRUN.EXE which was what caused my error.

SOURCE: i recently upgraded windows vista to windows 7. i

well, i thought that windows 7 would have been developed to be compatible with ALL of the previous systems and programs that they were compatible with. as it is, windows 7 DOES have a way in the control panel that helped me out... there's actually a link in the control panel called "run programs made for previous versions of windows" it took a few tries to get the right setup for the game, but it's pretty self explanatory. sometimes it takes a couple of tries to start it up, but now i CAN play Zoombinis on my windows 7 pc.

SOURCE: When I try to install

Maybe so. As alot of programs and software still recognizes windows xp and not windows 7. I have encountered alot of similar problems with windows 7 and the same program runs well with windows xp.

thanks,

G.

How do I fix this? Unsupported 16-Bit Application


You are trying to run a 32bit version program on a 64bit system, this is not allowed. Try obtaining the 64bit version of the program and load that or alternatively try CutePDF, it works well on any system.

Error message unsupported 16 bit application


16 bit software is not compatible with 64-bit engines.
The lowest number of software bits, called bit width, a 64b system can sometimes run if lucky, is 32b.
16 bits is the equivalent of 1 byte.
64 bits is therefore 4 bytes wide.
This means that the 64b system reads digitally coded instructions 4 bytes at a time, as one function to perform.
So if it tries to read all 4 bytes of a 16 bit 1 byte program it just sees meaningless garbage.
In fact, the header of the program file will ID it as 16 bits so that the 64 bit system knows not to even try to run it, as random weird instructions could corrupt or damage the computer.

The CreateACard Gold 3 (CAC Gold 3) will never work with Windows 7 64bit unassumingly because the software producing company has not upgraded their software for even Vista 64bit.
I recommend you to switch to " Hallmark Card Studio Special Edition" it has all the features of CAC Gold 3. You will enjoy it as there should be no problem installing it with Windows 7 64bit.

Good Luck!

unfortunately no, windows 64 bit doesn't support 32 bit or 16 bit applications so you should call the support number or go online to return the unsupported edition for a 64 bit edition (if they have one). Hope this helps.
