Ms-dos

  1. I will be honest MS-DOS means nothing to me but when I try to install the first version of the sims on to my new laptop it comes up with a message I dont understand. it goes as follows
    C:\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

    I dont understand why it wont work as I am using Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and on my old laptop I used the same version of Windows and I didnt have a single problem.

    Can someone tell me why it is doing this please and what I can do about it, if I can even do anything. Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to TechSpot Forums

    Could you open autoexec.nt with Notepad and paste its contents here? I don't think the first Sims installs anything that would require editing autoexec.nt, it might be something else.

    I guess you also forgot \windows from that directory, it should be c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt.
