Question:I downloaded digital voice recorder CD software and when opening the icon I get the following reply: c\:windows\system32\autoexec.nt. (The system file is not suitable for running ms-dos and Microsoft windows applications).
The CD states it\'s for Microsoft Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP. What should I do?
Answer: It appears as though you are trying to run a 16 bit program on your computer and the autoexec.nt file that handles the 16 bit subsystem is corrupt or missing. This sometimes happens on Windows XP with SP2 installed. This can happen when installing or uninstalling a program. Check your C:\WINNT\System32\ or C:\Windows\System32\ directory and see if the autoexec.nt file is there. If not then look in the C:\WINNT\Repair or the C:\Windows\Repair directory and copy the autoexec.nt file to the C:\WINNT\System32\ or C:\Windows\System32\ directory and try the program again.
If the file is there then it may be corrupt and you can try to overwrite it with the copy from the repair folder. If that doesn't work then you can try and get the file off of your Windows XP CD using the following method described in the Microsoft article. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324767
