I had an ATI RADEON 9200 video card installed into my computer and now I can't get my favorite game to work (Might and Magic VI). When I attempt to run the program I get a message that says c:\windows\system32\Autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows application. I tried it on my other computer too and I get a message that says video driver not a DirectDraw driver. Is there anyway I can fix these problems or do i need to retire the game :tazz:

its sounds like to me that the game is trying to run in dos mode, what operating system do you have, and have you changed anything before it quit working

My operating system is Windows XP ... and other then the installation of the video card, I don't think anything had been changed before it quit working.

i had that problem too, but got it fixed, its a glitch in some windows files that you need to run those programs, what you need to do is replace the files, i did a search about the problem and got help from the microsoft support thing, but hopefuly you won't have to do like me and go pay $100 for a new windows XP disk cause mine was pre installed when i bought my comp (you need to get the uncorrupted files from the disk, if you need any help getting them PM me) hope this helps you
