    Why not a 16bit on a 64bit system


    Hi,

    I'm not sure if this question ought to be here or in hardware, but it does have to do with software and apps.

    I have a 64bit processor. It can run 32bit software, but not 16bit. I can understand why a 32bit processor could not run a 64bit program as the 64 bits do not fit into the 32 bit registers. I can understand why a 32 bit program will run in a 64 bit processor - as long as it recognises that it is a 32 bit program so there are no overflow problems. But I can't understand why a 16 bit program cannot run in a 64 bit processor. Surely there should be no greater problem doing this that for a 32 bit one. Or is there?

    Matt

    Direct binary conversion of 16-bit code to 32/64-bit code, while theoretically possible, means implementing the entire x86 ISA and all it's quirks in software. At that point you're basically writing an emulator. DOSBOX and QEMU have been around for 15+ years and they still have emulation issues. In addition, you would still require an OS-level translation layer to handle memory, hardware accesses, and software interfaces.

    Even on 32-bit Windows, where the CPU can actually be switched to 16-bit mode, a translation layer was needed to run 16-bit apps - Virtual DOS machine - Wikipedia .

    So what you're saying is possible but MS has very little financial incentive to do it.

    how to run 16bit apps in windows 10 64bit

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
