JSI Tip 0724. Cannot run 16-bit Windows program. This program requires a newer version of Windows?


If you receive the subject message when starting a 16-bit Windows app, or receive:

Cannot run the 16-bit program. The application is not supported by Windows NT.,

it is generally because an app install replaced one of the following files in your %SystemRoot%\System32 folder:

 
Compobj.dll 
Ddeml.dll 
Ole2.dll 
Ole2disp.dll 
Storage.dll 
Ctl3dv2.Dll 
Ole2nls.dll 
Stdole.tlb 
Typelib.dll 
Ver.dll
Expand them from the CD-ROM.

Example:

Expand <CD-ROM>\i386\Ver.dl_ %SystemRoot%\System32\Ver.dll
