Brandy redux -> Unsupported 16-bit application on 64-bit OS (5/5/2010 8:29:39 PM)

NOTE: The WinXP, WinVista & Windows 7 Operating Systems were released in 2 basic versions - 32-bit & 64-bit.

If you are using WinXP, WinVista or Windows 7 - but you don't know which version you are using - go to 'Control Panel', select 'System', then look in the 'System type:' section for something which says either '32-bit Operating System' or '64-bit Operating System'. If you are using WinXP but don't see any mention of either 32-bits or 64-bits, that would indicate that you are using a 32-bit version of WinXP.

When the "Unsupported 16-bit Application" error message appears during an attempt to install software on a 64-bit Operating System, what that means is that the software's setup.exe file contains 16-bit programming code - which was commonly used in software applications which were originally designed when 16-bit processors were the norm. Since 64-bit Operating Systems cannot handle 16-bit programming code, it will not be possible to install that software on any 64-bit Operating System.

Here's another error message which might appear during an attempt to install software on a 64-bit Operating System. When this error message is generated, it will not be possible to install that software on any 64-bit Operating System.
