My 16 bit applications is running under 32 bit windows 7 system. But when comes to 64 bit system it does not run.

I think Microsoft should give backward compatibility to programs of 16 bit - just not by providing only solution like virtual pc - isn't it?

16 Bit applications are mostly DOS compatible, and since Windows doesn't emulate DOS, it wont work on Windows x86 or Windows x64.

To run DOS applications, you can use an emulator, and the best out there is DOSBOX:
