  1. You're out of luck.
  2. Windows XP Mode (or another virtual machine app, like VMware Player or Workstation) are your only options here. Windows 7 has no support for 16 bit code, so any 16 bit applications must be run in an older version of Windows.

    Are they Windows-based or DOS-based? If they are DOS games, you can use DOSBox.
