I'm trying to run an old Pacman game for Windows 95 called "Ms. Chomp":

When I had my old computer with Windows 7 32bit, it run fine, and it still run fine on a package of Dosbox-X + Windows 95, as you can see in the screenshot.
But when I try to run it on my current computer with Windows 10 64bit (Version 1909), I get "This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with software publisher ":


How to solve the problem?

You can't. 64bit removed support for older 16bit programs. There were even some games that should have worked because they were 32bit, but they used an older 16bit installer. Meaning you couldn't get the install or launcher to work. Dosbox is going to be the way to go.
