Get error when installing Pharaoh

I click the link to run Pharaoh and it says to install so I click that
and then it shows and error which reads:

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.
Close Ignore
Pressing either just exits the above window and does nothing.

I tried right clicking setup and going to its properties and chaning
to compatibility to Windows 95 and tried with 98 and tried both with
256 colors and in 640x480. I get the same error. How do I get rid of
this error.

Hi,

Here's an easy method to solve that error:
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_m.htm#16bit

If that doesn't correct the issue, try this manual method:

1. Browse to C:\WINDOWS\repair
Right-Click and Copy the file named: autoexec.nt *

2. Browse to C:\WINDOWS\System32
Right-Click in that window to Paste the file
(Answer yes if prompted to replace existing file)


* Note: If the file autoexec.nt doesn't exist on your system
right click the link below and select the "Save Target As.."
option to save the file in C:\WINDOWS\System32
