16-bit programs in a Windows 7 laptop?
« on: September 09, 2018, 09:20:58 PM »
I have written about 50 16-bit programs in an old Windows XP computer that I no longer use.
 I was using the CD supplied by TextPad, with references to an older edition of the Kip Irvine text, but I no longer
have this CD, which had all the software needed to assemble, run and debug the programs; the
debugger was CodeView.exe.  Does any software exist with which I could write and test 16-bit
code in a Windows 7 computer?

Thanks for any help or comments,

Michael

You can write 16-bit programs with the standard Masm32 SDK. The question is whether you can run them on Win7. Do you have the 32-bit OS installed...?

Maybe the better way is using DOSBox

But you can also intall a virtual machine and install it any OS you want.
