Tool to scan for 16-bit code?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?TWljcmFsLm5s?=, Apr 6, 2007.

  1. Hello, i'm a Server Based Computing specialist and am currently investigating
    the possibility to use 64bit windows 2003 for one of my customers.

    I'm looking for a way/tool to do an inventory of 16-bit code on thier
    current 32-bit machines. (I know i can't run 16-bit code on x64) the customer
    susers 200+ applications and i know a great deal of them is 16-bit or uses at
    least one or two 16-bit dll's.

    So in short, is there a 16-bit code scanner?

    Best regards,
    Micral

  2. I have never tried any of that - there is a utility, EXEHDR, if you can run
    it in Batch Mode, that might be one way, otherwise you might run it from a
    script, but it could be a major issue to have the script give consistent
    respons from the possibly varying Error Return Codes of all those app's
    you'll be testing. . .and you have to test the SETUP files separate from the
    Applications, of course and weed out those that don't install from those
    that will not run, for whatever reason.

    Might be easier to set up a test machine and install the lot there, that
    eliminates the ones that are installing and working so the rest may become
    more manageable?

    this page is discussing 'exehdr', it may not tell you a lot but might lead
    you further?
