  1. Error - SFC is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running.


    Today, I tried to run SFC to check my laptop. However, I received the following error: "This version of C:\WINDOWS\system32\sfc.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information and then contact the software publisher."In the error box, it stated that "Unsupported 16-bit Application" with "The program or feature C:\WINDOWS\system32\sfc.exe cannot start or run due to incompability with 64-bit version of Windows. Check your computer's system information and then contact the software publisher."I don't know how to fix this as most solution

    :)

    Running sfc /scannow shows that there are errors


    I tried what has been suggested above but no joy.....Well, the issue is sorted out now. I shelled out for a DVD copy of Windows 10 Pro. Installed it and no more issues when running sfc /scannow. I downloaded the USB ISO twice and got the error so I recon the USB ISO files as delivered from MS are simply not 100% compatible with my system. For whatever reason, a DVD install sorted it. Thanks for the help though, really appreciate it.

    Compatibility problems

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting your query. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    This issue might be due to corrupted or missing System files.

    I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Method 1: Run the SFC.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer.

    • Now check for the issue.

    Also, I suggest you to check with the compatibility of the program on Windows 10.

    Windows Compatibility Center

    Hope this information is helpful. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
