As long as the application does not install any drivers, there's a good chance it might work on Windows 8 64-bit. See this:

If, however, the applications installs one or more drivers, it probably won't even install, let alone run, on Windows 8 64-bit.

✔ Best Answer
Db3plus is ancient; it will be 16-bit software. 64-bit versions of Windows can't run 16-bit programs. The only solution is to run DOS, or a 32-bit version of Windows, in a Virtual Machine and run the program in that VM.
