Thread: 16 Bit Ms Dos Error?

  1. #1
    Maybe a stupid question, but..

    2x clicking the downloaded application gives a "16 bit ms dos" error message about being unable to create a temp file or something.

    If it is a really old application there maybe compatbility problem between it and your computer.

    More specific information about the program and the error would help.

    If you're using XP, you could try right-clicking on the file, select "Properties" and change the compatibility to Windows 95.

    Sorry but I thought this was a common issue...

    The application is Sims3000..

    At first it showed up as just an application, resulting in that error, but it changed to a zip file suddenly and I git it to work.

    I found out what the issue was tho.. it was specifically looking for a temp dir on the C drive to unzip, I had moved the file to a partition on my G drive. It unzipped fine from the C drive.

    Thanks for your help.

    If the error looks like that then open it with "IsoBuster".
