Prevent access to 16 bit applications.

This needs to be disabled or set to Not Configured to be able to access 16
bit apps

Also make sure you have the following files on your PC


If you don't have them, then copy those files from a working computer,
they're not machine specific in most cases, although a some programs add
their own lines to them.

If you don't have one or both of those files you can have problems
accessing 16-bit subsystems.
