16-bit protected mode applications have no problems. Real-mode
application might have problems... (Figuring out what exactly is
supported in Long mode's compatibility mode is a bit of a mission)
(Compatibility mode allows running 16/32-bit protected mode
applications, but documentation about the support for v86 mode is hard
to find..) (Wikipedia state that it is unsupported, but without any
references. Dosemu works with some kernel patches, not sure how they
work) They can be found here: http://v86-64.sourceforge.net/

Many real-mode applications are supposed to be runnable in protected
mode, but this is not always the case in practice.... (and few
applications attempt it) This gives the rules for which real-mode
application will work unmodified under (16-bit) protected mode:
