Running 16 Bit Windows Applications on 64 Bit Operating Systems

Dangerous_Minds (1869682) writes "ZeroPaid has recently posted a guide on how to get 16 bit Windows video games and applications running again on 64 bit operating systems. While the guide is directed at video games running on Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit), it could possibly be used on just about any operating system. The difficulty in running these particular applications is the fact that you need the Windows environment to run (not just Dosbox). The guide also points out that if you are running at some of the higher resolutions, the memory footprint of this concept is only about 100k. What 16 bit applications do you remember toying with back in the day?"
