    Question autoexec.nt error

    I keep getting the following error: "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."

    any ideas?
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    When do you get it?

    That file is used to "initialize the MS-DOS environment" (taken from the file.) Presumably it's used when running a DOS application within windows 2k/XP.

    Why in the world would the sims launch a DOS app?

    Anything on the sims website?

    the sims website is down but I don't think it is the sims which is causing the prob as I had same error with another non-dos prog(but cannot remember which one)
