When Windows NT runs on a system that has a RISC-based processor, 16-bitWindows emulation supports only standard mode. Microsoft purchased theemulator technology from Insignia Solutions; their product supports onlythe 286 at this time.

NOTE: Insignia Solutions may no longer support this product line.
