I haven't seen a 16-bit application in at least 10 years. Is anyone out there still running 16-bit apps?
If written in a language like Visual Basic (VB 4.0 was the last version to support compiling 16-bit apps), the application will have to be re-written in a more modern language. It's possible to recompile using VB 5 or VB 6 (if you can find a copy) with minor changes. Note that VB 4.0 was released in 1995... 17 years ago.
If written in ANSI-compliant C, any 32-bit C compiler should work with minor changes.
This assumes you can locate the source code.
