I'm running XP & trying to use a student e-book my son just brought home from school - Grade 12 Physics (groan!). Also have Adobe 7 reader in use.

When I try to open CD, the following error message comes up: 16 bit windows subsystem. c:\windows\system 32\autoexec.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS DOS & MS WIndows applications. Choose close to terminate the application.

The info on the CD indicates it requires a minimum of Windows 95 & Adobe 4 reader. I'm using XP & Adobe 7. Some info will open but not all the text is available.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I've had the same problem trying to get my daughter's French-CD-Rom to run.
I downloaded the fix from visualtour.com as suggested and it worked like a charm!
Thanks! Jtyo :thumbsup:
