16bit apps run out of memory?

hi all,

we use an old version of smartserver because of the way we parse messages from it for our pods.

we get the following:

The Win 16 Subsystem has insufficent resources to continue running. Click on OK, close your applications, and restart your machine.

any suggestions?

The problem is that windows XP doesn't really understand 16 bit applications, it just emulates them.

Try running the application in compatibility mode, goto the properties of the executable or the shortcut to it, select the compatibility tab, select Windows 98 as the operating system.

As a last resort could try running Windows 98 and the application in Virtual PC
