    The application you're trying to run isn't compatible with XP's command prompt. If it's a pure DOS application, you could try running it in DOSBox or install some DOS version into VirtualPC or similar virtualization environment.

    I'm not intentionally /manually running an application. A service or some services are suddenly throwing that error in the background while I use any other standard applications installed on my pc. The error does not happen due to usage of a specific application. so , how can I find the name of the service running in the background which is causing that problem and uninstall it ?
