Hello,

I originally posted this problem in Hardware/peripherals cos I thought I couldn't install printer only it seems it may not be the printer but the software with it. The message I got on screen after I had inserted C.D. was "16 BIT WINDOWS SUBSYSTEM... ..........C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC\N.T. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and microsoft windows applications. Choose close to terminate the application". (There was also an ignore button but nothing happened when I clicked it).
I've looked under C:\windows etc autoexec\n.t. but can't find the file path there.
(Not sure if that is the correct term, hope you know what I mean)
I have also had the same problem with a couple of other C.D's I've tried to install which were fine when I had WinME.

My post seems to have vanished from the original place I had it, why is this?

Any help much appreciated.

Lindy x :tazz:

Hi,

Thanks for that. I've installed files but haven't a clue what to do now. I'm waiting to see if my Brother can help me.

Thanks again and I'll let you know the outcome

The instructions from Microsoft say to expand the files: the person who posted the thread said you could download them directly.

Hello there,

Many thanks for your help. It can't have escaped your notice that when it comes to computers I know not much....(Hmm understatement or what??). I now have my printer installed and really appreciate what you have done. :tazz:

Thanks again, Lindy x ;)
