    hi,
    i got the error when execute the .com ro 16-bit exe files

    c:\windows\system32\..........\----.com is a 16-bit application. you do
    not have permissions to execute 16-bit applications.check your
    permissions with your system administrator.


    any one give the solutions,
    thanks in advance,

    start
    run
    gpedit.msc
    click OK
    <Group Policy Editor opens>

    navigate to

    Computer Configuration
    Administrative Templates
    Windows Components
    Application Compatibility
    Prevent access to 16 bit applications.

    This needs to be disabled or set to Not Configured to be able to access 16
    bit apps

    Also make sure you have the following files on your PC

    c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt
    c:\windows\system32\config.nt

    If you don't have them, then copy those files from a working computer,
    they're not machine specific in most cases, although a some programs add
    their own lines to them.

    If you don't have one or both of those files you can have problems accessing
    16-bit subsystems.
