16-bit / 32-bit programs: how to run in Windows 7

I am a trainer and my programs over the years have been created in 16 & 32 bit programs. When I bought my new laptop, I bought the updated programs to go with 64-bit. However, they will not pull my training files that are in 16 and 32 bit. What do I do to get the new laptop to accept my training programs and the created files?

  1. what version of Windows 7 do you have?

    maybe you could run WindowsXP in VM mode.
  2. Best answer
    Win 7 x64 has no problems running 32 bit programs, however it will not run 16 bit programs. You will need Win 7 x86 (32 bit) to run 16 bit programs or install XP as a VM.
