virtual machine – Running 16Bit Application on Windows 10×64 without VT-x

I have a legacy application (exe header = “MZ”) which I usually run through VMWare workstation or the 32-Bit version of Windows. Now I got at a computer having a Core 2 Duo processor not supporting VT-x, and Windows 10×64, so VMWare won’t run and the 16-Bit emulation built into WIndows x32 isn’t available either.

I could try to swap the processor for a model which does support VT-x … but before I go after that … is there any other means which I can try to get this software running on Windows 10×64?

Thnx, Armin.
