It seems like I've read that some folks have managed it with virtualization, but frankly running 16 bit programs on a 64 bit system is like trying to put a 4 cylinder engine in a motor home. What you might do would be to partition your C: drive and install a 32 bit version of Windows 10 or earlier in the new partition, giving you a dual boot configuration.
Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

16-bit programs no longer function on 64-bit versions of Windows.Try to run a 16-bit application on a 64-bit version of Windows and you’ll just see a “This app can’t run on your PC” message.You need to install a virtual environment running a 32-bit version of Windows to run a program with a 16-bit program on 64-bit Windows. If the program itself is 32-bit, and just the installer is 16-bit,there are ways to modify a 16-bit installation program to make it 32-bit so it will install on 64-bit Windows OS. If only the installer is 16-bit (and it installs a 32-bit component), then you might be able to use a program like 7-Zip to extract the contents of the installer and install them manually

I also ran into a problem with a very ancient, but dear program of mine.
The best way is to install a virtual machine (like the free vm-ware player), install an older older version of Win like XP, 2000, etc where the program was still functioning into that VM, and run your program from there. Takes some extra time to start, and resources from your pc, but you can configure it to use your CD-drives/burners, printers etc from the host as if you run the old system.
Works for me, but I don't use that ancient program on a daily basis.
