@Tsaukpaetra said in YAWTC (Yet Another Windows Ten Complaint):
Apparently there is a 32-bit version that does include 16-bit support though.
Yeah, Windows XP Mode, which is really just Windows XP in a VM.
No, there's a W10 version that's all 32-bit
I fail to see how that applies. Also, Windows 10 32-bit (actually, Windows 8.1-and-up 32-bit) requires PAE and NX-Bit for who-knows why.
Ah, rereading that I think you meant "16-bit support is called XP Mode", not "the 32-bit version is called XP Mode", which I assumed you meant because XP is (commonly) 32-bit.
Are you sure XP Mode exists on W10? Everybody tells me it doesn't and googling around for it seems to confirm that. The only answer from MS I found says
Windows 8/8.1 32-bit comes with a built-in option to turn on or off 16-bit application support. You may try using 16 bit application if you have 32 bit operating system version of Windows 10.
If that was based on a true VM instead of NTVDM, why would they disable that on 64-bit W10?
OK, I'm on thin ice here trying to apply everyday logic to Windows, but still …
