    Error message when you install or start an MS-DOS or 16-bit Windows-based program

    Replace the standard version of autoexec.nt/config.nt by copying a backup copy
    located in %windir%\repair\ to %windir%\system32\
    (NB: %windir% is typically C:\Windows)

    note:-

    creating registry entries for that file.
