Well I just got a new computer not a long time ago and when I try to run some of my old games there is an error message with something like 16-bit not supported...

My System Configs are:
Intel Pentium 4
512 Ram
Windows XP SP2
Ati Radeon 9600

Klinkaroo:

What is the exact message that you are getting?
Without it, I would only be able to guess at what is causing your problem.

Thanks.

Klinkaroo:

Try this fix.

xp_fix.exe

Explanation of the fix:

This installaton program will reinstall the missing or corrupt Windows XP system files command.com, autoexec.nt and config.nt. The absence or corruption of one or more of these files causes a "16 Bit Subsystem" error.

We recommend that you download this file and save it to your desktop or to another location where you can find it. Double click on the file to run it once it's downloaded. If problem reoccurs in the future, simply re-run this program.


Let us know if that helped.
JC
