    RESOLUTION
    To resolve this issue:
    Click Start, and then click Run.
    In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
    At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:

    place windows cd in cd-rom

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\config.nt_ c:\windows\system32\config.nt

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32\command.com
    exit

    restart computer

    What version of Windows? And did you upgrade or do a full install?

    FAT32 or NTFS partitioning?

    Try repeating the commands but just use c:\windows\system32 as the destination without the \filename.ext on the end of the command

    If you still get the same error, go into My Computer then C Drive and see if you have a WINNT folder there instead of Windows, if so, repeat the above commands but use c:\winnt\system32 as the destination

    Yes, copy the commands out completely as originally posted but leaving the filename off the very end of the line so the command ends with c:\windows\system32 -

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\config.nt_ c:\windows\system32

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32

    exit


    What were you trying to do when you got the latest error? If it occurred when you tried to install the game again then you could try the solutions offered in this thread.

    Right click the shortcut that launches your game and select properties, then on the compatibility tab check the box to 'run in compatibility mode for' and select Windows 95 from the drop box. You could also try it in compatibility mode for Windows 98 to see which gives better results.

    You could also try running the Program Compatability Wizard which you will find under Start | All Programs | Accessories.

    Let us know how you get on :)
