I look all over the net and it seem to be a problem:

Q: I am using VB-16bit (do you know if i can download 32bit? or how i can get it) and windows95. I used both with no problems for a long
     time but then one day i made an .exe file and when i ran it i got the error message (Cannot find DLL file "n16.dll" or "). i searched my
     hard drive and found nothing. I searched other computers with win95 and found no n16.dll. My applications do not run anywhere
     anymore. HELP!!

     A: You can download the VB5 Control Creation Edition from Microsoft, but that will not allow you to create executables. For that you will have to
     purchase VB5 Learning, Professional or Enterprise Edition. The 'N16.DLL' error you mention is one that I have seen reported many times. I have
     been told that it occurs when you install the original VB4 as released from Microsoft and then try to use an application on a system that has DLLs from
     the VB 4.0a release that came out several months later. It fixed a number of problems, but apparently EXE files created by the original version have
     problems with the updated files. I have not been able to verify that claim, but getting the 4.0a update from Microsoft, or moving up to VB5, is likely to
     solve your problem.

But I will look more and post any news.
