Hi Ya'll . Having a problem installing bundled software that came with a scanner. It could be SP2 that's causing my problem . I get this error message. C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The systen file is not suitablefor running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Close to terminate the application. Something about windows 16 bit subsystem. I hope someone can help. Thanks. Azrael.

Please keep replies in the thread.

As a follow up to the link I posted:

Be sure the file C:\Windows\System32\autoexec.nt exists. Open it with notepad and confirm it contains the following active lines ('REM' lines are inactive):

@echo off
    lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\mscdexnt.exe
    lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\redir
    lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\dosx
    SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 P330 T3

If the file does not exist, or it does not contain all the proper lines, then follow step 4 as it applies to autoexec.nt . If you do not have an OS disk available, manually create the autoexec.nt file as described in steps 10 - 13, 16 and 17.

If repairing/replacing the autoexec.nt file does not help, you may have to check with the tech support of the scanner manufacturer.
