    The same error message appeared in Windows 7 if you try to:
    - Run DOS programs in a 64 bit edition
    - Run an itanium program on an x86 computer
    - Run an 64-bit program on a 32-bit Windows

    Reminds me of trying to get program X to work on my Android phone.

    this error is reserved for corrupted EXEs, and any architecture conflicts (16-bit programs on x64, Itanium on x86/x64, x86 on ARM/ARM on x86, etc.) Rarely seen when an EXE has a MAXIMUM Windows edition declared alongside the minimum, but this happens in all of like 30 programs ever made, so...

    > 16-bit programs on x64

    That reminds me, is there an easy way to do that without running them in an emulator ?

    I'm just reminded of an old customer of mine who refuses to upgrade their software..

    @Nanos DOSBox or a VM. It won't run natively.

    Oh well, I guess that leaves disassembling and rewriting the code !

    It looks like you have a pretty bad Trojan horse infection called Windows 10. It's a Spyware program that pretends to be an operating system - the only recourse is a full wipe of the hard drive. Good luck!

    @Gogeta70 Sorry, but this doesn't fix the problem. Using the wrong architecture raised the same unhelpful error message since at least (if not earlier) Windows 7.

    64bit vs 32bit or ARM vs x86
