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.


is there something i can do about this, i had this pop up on a program on my desktop, i'm on a laptop now, but now it says that when i try to play dungeon keeper 2 on this laptop, but it didnt say that when i played it on the desktop, which is broken.

what can i do about this issue, they both run the same version of windows.

Some legacy apps don't like to run with xp, right click the exe and go to properties and try running it in compatibility mode.
