I can't try it for you but many use DOSBOX when an 16 bit command line item is required. Here my old DOS .com files still run.
I downloaded a free sewing pattern. File type: MS-DOS Application (.com) and when I tried to open it a pop up told me "This app can't run on on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher"
I'm not PC savvy, have looked at opening a dos file but have no idea how to go ahead.
I'd appreciate if anyone out there can help me?
Thx in advance.
