Cannot execute 16-bit installer


  • We have a Windows 2003 R2 server on which I am unable to execute any 16-bit installers to upgrade a legacy app.

    When double-clicking on the installer, nothing happens. No error message and no entry in the event viewer logs.

    I have tried the following:
    - Change the Compatibility Mode to all options
    - Enabled the "Allow non-administrators" to run this program
    - Tried running under a domain admin account and a local admin account

    This app was previously running on another Windows 2003 R2 server on which we were able to run these 16-bit installers.
