Installing on XP machine



Watching the movies made me remember playing SWR. I tried installing it but I keep getting an error message when I click install: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and microsoft windows applications. Then it gives me CLOSE or IGNORE. I click ignore and it closes. I have opened the file on the disk and brought up the properties of the auto run icon to 95 compatability and it doesn't change the result. Any ideas?

I found it, just in case anyone else encounters the problem:


A: This is a recent problem that is caused by upgrading to Windows XP SP2

(Service Pack 2). Apparently, in some Systems, during the SP2 installation

important System files such as: AUTOEXEC.NT or CONFIG.NT get deleted,

causing various Applications to fail and yielding the above errors.


The same issue has been reported to also happen after a virus attack

that is messing up people's System files and it is just running rampant.

In order to protect your System, please make sure that you have the

latest virus Definitions installed for your anti-virus software program.
