While trying to install or run an application, your system displays the error:

WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications.

If you get an error naming the AUTOEXEC.NT as not being suitable, it is an indication the AUTOEXEC.NT file in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder is missing or corrupt.

A backup copy of the AUTOEXEC.NT file is kept in the WINDOWS\repair folder.

To fix the error, copy the AUTOEXEC.NT file from the WINDOWS\repair folder and paste it into the WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder.
