hi-
I am having a problem installing programs from CDs. My computer recognizes that the CD is there, but when I hit the install button, something pops up. it is titled 16 bit Windows Subsystem, and says
"C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The systen file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application." If i choose close, it closes, and if I choose ignore, it closes.
If anyone could help me, that would be great! Thank you so much!!!

thank you so much for the article. I had trouble with two parts of it--- when I was in the cmd, and entered the commands, it said they did not exist. after making the notepad entries, i could not find the system32 folder to put them into.
Sorry for the trouble...i am horrible with computers...If anyone could help....

The SYSTEM32 folder should be in-
C:\WINDOWS\
If you cannot find it, click on Start -> Search. Then click on All files and folders and type SYSTEM32 into the search box. Look in Local Disk C.
This should help you to find it.
