In Windows XP SP2 (which I suppose you're using) there is a problem with version 4.1.
I think the best you can do is download the version 4.5 Beta. Instructions here:;action=display;threadid=8044;start=0

Can you make a try and see if it's ok? Thanks.
You can search the board for 16-Bit applications and will find more...
