The problem is probably not due to the CPU or the OS, it is probably in the program itself!

Did your program run correctly in DOS?

Duplicate question :) Anyway, there's what Inprise (former Borland) says about it:
"Applications that use the CRT unit may generate this error message when running on very fast machines (i.e. Pentium Pro 180 and above). The cause of this error is a timing loop that occurs as part of the initialization of the CRT unit. This timing loop counts how many clock ticks occur within the loop and then that number is divided by 55. The result of this division is a value that is too large to fit into an integer value. The 'Divide by 0' error message is the catch-all error that is displayed when this overflow occurs.
There are currently no Inprise endorsed patches for this problem. There are several user provided patches available on the internet that patch both the CRT unit as well as existing EXE files. The easiest way to obtain these patches is to go to www.altavista.digital.com and search on '+ bp7patch.zip + tppatch.zip' without the quotes. "
