I'm trying to install a game on my PC, but everytime I click the Install Game button on the autorun thingy, a message box pops-up saying:

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.

The only options i have from this point on are to close or ignore, which just does what close does

I've checked in the System32 folder and can't actually find the AUTOEXEC file, is this why the problem exists?

Anyone know how to solve this?

Thanks

Not sure. Should it be? I've had no problems before with installing stuff.

The setup file says 16-bit Setup Launcher? Is this normal?

When I try to install the game, at the top of the error message that pops up, as mentioned above, it says '16 bit Windows Sub system'

Can anyone help me here? cheers!
