I am upgrading from my Windows XP SP3 and Pentium 4 machine. I currently run some old 16 bit software. (When viruses goof up Windows even in SafeMode,I can only run my AVIRA anti-virus from the very old 16 bit Norton Commander program.)
I believe that most all 32 bit software will run on 64 bit Windows7, but I was told that 16 bit code will NOT run on 64 bit Windows7 and any 32 bit software that has some 16 bit code will also not run. IS THIS CORRECT?
If so, is there any free software out there that will let me run the old stuff on Windows7? or is there another solution?
