Question How to run a 16 bit game on Win7 x64?


does someone know how to run a 16 bit game on WIN7 x64? I know 64 bit doesn't emulate 16 bit anymore, but there's gotta be a way. DOSBOX falls flat, it's a Windows application and it refuses installation. Do I really have to set up a virtual XP machine to play one game?

It is a blast from the past, but not sure, if I want to go through setting up a VM. Maybe someone of you knows a nifty trick? It's a game I searched desperately and even posted in the Forgotten Games Bureau and now I found and bought it, not knowing it's a 16 bit application.

Thanks in advance.
