About the 16 bit version:

The importance of 16 bit software in the Windows market is steadily decreasing as the userbase for Windows 3.x continues to decline. Development and maintenance costs for 16 bit legacy software, however, do not fall with the decline in the userbase. In order to keep DaVinci viable for this market, we have increased the price for the 16 bit version to the same level as the 32 bit version in order to justify providing both 16 and 32 bit libraries with functionally identical interfaces and capabilities. We ask for your understanding in this change of policy.

As a part of this change of policy, existing DaVinci version 2 licensees are offered an upgrade path to either DaVinci 3 16 bit or DaVinci 3 32 bit.
