Does anyone know how to get Norn Pose to work on modern machines?

I'm not sure you can. Isn't it a 16-bit application?

Edit: You can run them now, according to this source. It looks like a bit of work to set up.

Edit 2: As pointed out below, source is not relevant in this case. Disregard.

As far as I know, it's an "Unsupported 16 bit application" and can't be used in 64 bit versions of Windows. Installing 16 bit app support requires a 32 bit Windows.

Running the program in command prompt gives a more informative message than the dumbed-down "This app can't run on your PC" message. There are actually a few old programs out there that will throw that message but are actually possible to run in the command prompt if I recall correctly.

While I can't get nornpose for C1 to work, nornpose for C2 can work on windows 10.

You know...wait...nevermind.

How about DOSBox running an old version of Windows. It's not an elegant solution, but it should work. I think you can feed the box directories and then point NornPose to them.

Edit: Following on from what Verm said, NornPose C2 works with the official C1 breeds, as they were included in C2.
