HOW DO YOU ADJUST 16 TO 32-BIT PROCESSING

THE SOFTWARE I PURCHASED WAS MADE FOR 16-BIT MODE AND THEY TOLD ME I HAD TO CHANGE THE PROCESSING SO MORE 16-BIT IS BEING USED THAN THE 32-BIT (ALOT OF MONEY INVESTED IN THIS VB PROJECT)

One thing you can do is run 16bit programs in a separate memory space, the advantage is that they are more robust and crash less. What you do is go to the Start Menu, Run, browse, then tick the "Run in separate Memory" box. A better alternative isto crete a short cut, then go to Properties and check the "Run in separate memory box".

You can't just change your processing from 32 bit to 16 bit. If a tech told you that I don't know if I would trust their software! Windows NT is a 32 bit OS that can run 16 bit applications natively. The best solution when running a 16 bit app isto have it run in it's own memory space by going to the shortcut on the program and properties. This works for most applications but I would talk to your vendor about a 32 bit release.

I'm sorry someone sold you on 16-bit software. I thought those were ancient history. But 16-bit software still works with NT and if you have problems with it, you can customize the way it runs by changing the properties of the icon (right-clk on icon, properties...etc). Run it in a seperate memory space to keep it isolated in case it crashes.

Now in terms of 16-bit programs, I would insist on a 32-bit version or get my money back....
