I am trying to d/l the driver for my Epson C62 Stylus Printer. The file is 'epson10542.exe' which unzips as 'setup.exe'. The setup.exe file is supposed to be self-extracting producing an '.inf' file that will let me install the printer. When I try to execute the setup.exe file, I received the following message:

'16-bit Windows Subsystem

C:\WINNT\System32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS or Microsoft Windows. Choose 'Close' to terminate this application'

I am trying to install this printer on my laptop (IBM ThinkPad). I have it (the printer) installer on my desktop and it performs well. Both computer have W2K installed on them.

What can/should I do?

Copy c:\windows\repair\autoexec.nt to c:\windows\system32

When that is done, see if it works now
