Have loaded games on before, bought one today that is compatible with windows
and xp. I have XP. It wont let me install. Comes up with the following
message. (16 bit windows subsystem) - C:\Windows\system32\autoexec.nt.The
system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows
applictions.

I havent had any probs before and am logged in as adminstrator, but
obviously one of my settings isnt right, I have also tried the compatibility
wizard to no avail. Please help

Have similar problems with Arcsoft software (Funhouse)

Was referred by them to:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324767

It tells you there how to get round the problem when installing from CD

Good luck
