I have to agree, if it's a 16-bit program, Windows 7 64-bit simply isn't designed to run that. I've heard of some people being able to re-write the programming for the game utilizing Microsoft's Application Compatibility Manger; after that it would work. That's a little beyond my scope though. For most games like that I've had to use dosbox myself.
edit: should read Windows 7 64-bit
