Can't run 16-bit Windows Program

By donald.pijpstra ·
On one of our IBM Thinkpads a user get's the following erromessage This application is not supported by Microsoft Windows NT. The window title is: Can't run 16-bit Windows Program. When he logs on to another TP600 with the same installation he can run the program (Ccplus) without problems. I also used other userid's and only on this one PC the error occurs. I completely reinstalled the pc but the problem comes back. I checked on BIOS versions and did a memory test but found nothing wrong. So what might be wrong, is it a hardware problem?

Before you rule that it's a hardware problem, try installing service pack 5 on the machine. Don't install 6 because it is full of bugs. 5 is the most stable.

Also, try launching the app in an NTVDM.

I should have mentioned that SP5 is installed on all the machines.

I had a similar problem once and had to completely format the drive and reinstall everything. We had tried replacing the motherboard, but that didn't fix the problem.
