    Error message when you install or start an MS-DOS or 16-bit Windows-based program

    SYMPTOMS

    If you try to start or install an MS-DOS-based or a 16-bit Windows-based program on your Windows XP-based computer, you may receive an error message that is similar to one of the following:

    16-bit MS-DOS Subsystem

    path to the program that you are trying to start or install

    C:\Winnt\System32\config.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

    16-bit MS-DOS Subsystem

    path to the program that you are trying to start or install

    config.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

    16-bit MS-DOS Subsystem

    path to the program that you are trying to start or install

    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.

    Although you may be prompted to quit the program or ignore the error message, either selection makes the program quit.

    CAUSE

    This issue may occur if one or more of the following files are missing or damaged: ? Config.nt

    ? Autoexec.nt

    ? Command.com

    RESOLUTION

    To resolve this issue: 1. Insert the CD into the CD drive or DVD drive.

    2. Click Start, and then click Run.

    3. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.

    4. At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\config.nt_ c:\windows\system32\config.nt

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt

    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32\command.com

    exit

    5. Start or install the program. If the issue is resolved, do not complete the remaining steps. If the issue is not resolved, go to the next step.

    6. Note: The Command.com file is not edited or created in this in the following process. Because of this, you may have to expand it from your Windows XP CD-ROM.

    Start Notepad.

    7. In Notepad, type the following entries: dos=high, umb

    device=%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\himem.sys

    files=40


    8. On the File menu, click Save As.

    9. In the File Name box, type Config.nt, and then click Save. Close the Config.nt file.

    SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 P330 T3


    12. On the File menu, click Save As.

    13. In the File Name box, type Autoexec.nt, and then click Save. Close the Autoexec.nt file.

    14. Start Windows Explorer. Locate the Config.nt file, right-click the Config.nt file, and then click Copy.
