    What type of 16-bit program? Windows supports:
    1. DOS real-mode 16 bit code.
    2. OS/2 protected mode 16 bit code.
    3. Windows protected mode 16 bit code.

    The third would probably be able to receive certain types of messages from a 32-bit application. OS/2 applications MAY be possible, but I doubt it, and there is no chance on a 16-bit DOS mode applicaiton.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    It's the third type. It's a Windows3.1 16bit application.
