I was trying to install a couple of programs and I kept on getting this error message...

16 Bit Windows Subsystem
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.

What should I do in able to run this program?
