64 Bit Win 7 Won't run DOS program any more

I run the Usenet news spool program slrnpull.exe on Windows. I was able to run the program once from the commandline, however now the OS complains about the program not being 32bit with a pop up window.

Is there anyway to run a 16-bit dos program on Win 7 64 Bits?

Some of the suggestions from this site - http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/how-can-i-run-16-bit-programs-in-windows-7-64-bit/22b921f5-0b71-4ba1-8567-2bb86a1b604e - include downloading Windows XP mode or DOSBox or creating a dual boot system with Windows XP. The easiest two would be to download Windows XP mode (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-xp-mode) or run DOSBox.

    Hi, I found my solution. For some reason the program was over written, probably a commandline options mistake by me.

    Thanks.
