  1. HI new to the site and im hoping someone can help me out

    I just purchased a graphics pad and when i try to install the software i keep getting the error message

    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.

    can anyone explaine what this is and / or how i get passed it.

    I have a lot of pre XP software i own that i get a similar message with when i try using them.

    im running xp..home edition

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your problem is caused because one of these Windows files is either missing or damaged., autoexec.nt and config.nt. The absence or corruption of one or more of these files causes a "16 Bit Subsystem" error.

    Go HERE and download and run the XP_FIX.EXE file. It should solve your problem.
