When I try to install some software I sometimes get a box come with the following message in it:

16bit Windows Subsystem ? C:\Windows\System32\Autoexec.NT

The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows Application Choose ?Close? to terminate the application.

I am then given a choice of 2 boxes with Close in one and terminate in the other

Can anyone tell me how to overcome this problem and install the program

On the File menu, click Save As.
In the File Name box, type Autoexec.nt, and then click Save. Close the Autoexec.nt file

When i have typed the text and in the solution above, i get a text file and not a .nt file. How do i solve this.

I just ran into the same problem last week. It was easily fixed by copying AUTOEXEC.NT from \Windows\repair to \Windows\System32.

In reference to the solution above how do i do the windows repair to windows\System32 option.
