Windows 7: Old program on Windows 7, x64

Old program on Windows 7, x64

So I have an old program (8 or 16 bit) and it runs only in 32 bit OS. How can I run in on Windows 7, x64 without dualboot or virtual mashine?

You may be able to run it on a program like DOSBox.
It will not run natively on Windows 7 x64.

DosBox has its own forum. Seems like you'd have more luck asking that question on that forum.

Dosbox *is* a virtual machine.

That or another VM may be the only way you'll run ancient software on an X64 PC.
