    Ant I had a similar problem with the Win16 subsystem error recently, unfortunately I can't remember the software I was having the problem with. Take a look at this KB article

    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=103104

    try entering the line for dosx in your autoexec.nt it did work for me.
