In one of my Win2K machines, no 16 bit app will load correctly without ignoring a .pif file causing a registry error in System\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers.  It says the Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid.  In that registry location there is a default value and one put there by symantec (NAV 2002 I assume).

As the main POS/Inventory software is 16 bit DOS run in Windows, this functionality is critical.  Advice is greatly appreciated.
