Are you running XP X64? If so it cant handle 16 bit applications. Only 32 bit and 64 bit.

Also how old is the app? If it is from 95 or so then maybe even XP cant handle it. Some really old apps dont run on XP that well.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
