[Help] - system 32 not suitable


Recommended Posts

When I first got my computer installed with XP about a year and a half ago, I had no problem installing and running older games. Now whenever I try to install any pre-XP game I get the message: “C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT, The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications.

I’ve tried updating my drivers and downloading patches for the games but nothing works. When I use the compatibility wizard I just get the same message.

Any suggestions?
