QEMU (manager) is the only solution against EGPFault in Win87EM.dll with newer Intel-CPUs

QEMU Manager is the very good Windows GUI for QEMU. In difference to VirtualBox or VMware Player you can emulate several CPUs, which is necessary for old 16bit applications with EGPFault in Win87EM.dll with newer Intel-CPUs (from 2013 and later) in all other virtual machines except QEMU.

So only with QEMU (not with VMware or VirtualBox or Windows XP Mode) you can use and compile Delphi 1.6 programs, when you have a newer Host-CPU from Intel. Without QEMU you must buy another computer with an AMD-CPU, because VirtualBox or VMware Player cannot emulate various CPUs, as QEMU can.
