The Win-16 subsystem has insufficient resources to continue running

I have had an older card database system in use for years. All of a sudden I get the following error message after using it for a bit.
"The Win-16 subsystem has insufficient resources to continue running. Click on OK. Close your applications and restart your computer "
I can only assume a Windows Update has created a problem for the old programme. It happens at home and on my work PC.

What OS are you running under?

If Windows 7, try it from in the "XP Mode" virtual machine.

Sounds like a driver or resource addressing wow32.dll has been updated. If it's very recent try a system restore to a date prior to this starting then apply updates individually until you find the culprit.
