I keep getting this error message when installing a program that says it is compatible w/ Vista:
Unsupported 16-Bit Application
The program or feature “\??\E:\academic\rsup.exe” cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.
Plan B: use an older version of Windows in a Virtual Machine (aka inside a windows on Vista). Can be any other Windows OS (so long as it's not 64-bit). For max compatibility, go for a hybrid 16/32-bit version of Windows like Windows 98 or 95.
Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...7-F6C7A1F000B5
(in your case get the 64-bit setup)
