Hi,

I have recently re-loaded XP Pro and my program library.
Some CDs containing programs which used to load fine and which are designated for Win XP are producing an error message. Headed "16 bit Windows Subsystem" it reads"C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application."
Push button options are Close and Ignore. FWIW, Ignore does nothing useful. Something has gone wrong. Please advise how to fix.

Thank You

Follow these instructions carefully Perl

i had the same problem after installing winxpprosp2. i found that the autoexec.nt and config.nt files were missing from the system32 folder. however, the files were found in the system32\repair folder. copied them to the system32 folder and it worked for me. hope it does for you. anyway its to do with the autoexec.nt and config.nt files !! Good Luck!!

My wife went to a website and picked up some nasty adware... I found BargainBuddy and 180Search on her system. What happened was autoexec.nt turned up missing. I moved a copy of autoexec.nt from my pc on to hers... everything was OK... then she rebooted and it was gone again.

I ran Ad-Aware and cleaned a bunch of stuff off her system... I also ran Norton AV to check for virii...

Any idea why autoexec.nt keeps disappearing?

Archie,

If the instructions on the website are followed to the 'T' the system should be up and running, failing which the only option would be to reinstall windows on the system.
I have noticed that, sometimes, the file does not get expanded.
You need to check that the file has actually been expanded before you go onto the next command :-)
