PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP Pro service pack 1
Problem Application Name & Version:Installing games & some software
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: 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



The above error message appears everytime I try To install some game like Tomb Raider III, (EA Games)and some software disks that came with my old PC. The original PC was from "Time computers" with windows 98. I have since purchased a new pc and installed XP.
Have today tried to install a family tree (GSP) software that came with the original pc. This also happens with sotware from Europress.

Is it a fault with Windows XP not recognising the cd's or are they only made for Windows 98?? Because I have 50 cd's with games and software that I purchased from "Time compters", and dont wish to discard.

Thanks.

Hello
The easiest is simply inserting the Windows XP CD into the CD drive and clicking start --> Run and entering:

expand X:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt

Replace X:\ with your CD ROM drive letter.
