As we all know windows has release the Windows ME version on the year of 2000. It is a earlier version of Windows 98. Windows 98 operating system is run with 16-bit application relate with dos programs.

But in Windows ME the application is updated to 32-bit. So far I know the software which is on 16-bit will not run on ME but you can try the following for do this:

Go to the System properties menu then select the Settings option from the menu bar the chose the 16-bit color quality and as do it in your graphic properties menu.

Then try to setup, if it works. If not, try to get the 32-bit version software on your operating system.

I’m not sure if I can agree with that. I started using Microsoft Windows from Windows 95 up until Windows XP. I still have my copy of Windows Millennium.

As far as I remember it right, when I was still using Windows Millennium before I didn’t encounter any problems using applications that were originally compatible with earlier versions like Windows 95 and Windows 98.

And even until now when I’m already using Windows XP, those same programs still work. Windows Millennium or Windows ME was released in September 14 of 2000 and is the next version after Windows 98 which was then released in 1998.

It was then followed by Windows XP in 2001. If you are still using Windows Millennium until now and you are experiencing problems using 16-bit software, it would be best to upgrade your operating system to newer versions like Windows XP or newer since Windows ME is no longer supported starting July 11 of 2006.

There are different ways of making your 16-bit programs run on newer operating systems.
