Blame MS for writing a working OS with XP
They produce an operating system which runs programs.
A program I ran on my XP machine produces
Unsupported 16-Bit Application
then too much blurb for me to type in.
The language was extrememly popular in the 90s for database applications, I know of at least one large hospital system written in it (I knew the head programmer).
NT4 with some issues*
Vista 32 with some major issues*
W7 32 with showstopping issues (NETBIOS)
W7 64 no hope
* running client server as well!
W7 32 was killed off due to killing off IP support for the program which provides client server access.
We do factory software.
So what did we do in the real world?
Vista - upgrade to XP, or run in a low resolution mode
W7 - tough, we tried, at first use your XP PCs, later test our new Windows software.
Huge DOS system, it took over 5 years to get into a viable WIN32 version. MS does not understand the software industry, you buy software to do a job, not because it is written in X.
