I downloaded win_en_pro_bf.exe to make some staert up disks. But when I open
it I get a box "16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem" with the message-
-
C:\Windows\system32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for runing
MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. chose "close to terminate the
application.

close Ignore

Help, when I close I'm done.

You might want to take a look at this article:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324767

Quoting from the article, here's the easiest approach:

1. Click Start, click Run, type c:\windows\repair, and then
click OK.
2. Right-click autoexec.nt, and then click Copy.
3. Click Start, click Run, type c:\windows\system32, and
then click OK.
4. Right-click anywhere in that folder, and then click
Paste.
5. Right-click the Autoexec.nt file that you just copied,
and then click Properties.
6. Click to select Read-Only, and then click OK.

Note You must enable Read-Only permissions or the file will be
removed after you restart Windows.

Here are a couple of sites with alternative solutions to this
problem:

Download XP_FIX.EXE

16-bit MS-DOS Subsystem error while installing or running a DOS
application
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/16bit.htm

From what I can gather, this problem is becoming a common
occurrence. It looks as if some sort of spyware/malware may be
at
the root of the problem. For that reason, you might want to run
a
scan with an updated antivirus program. You should also
download,
install, update and run the following antispyware programs:

AdAware

Spybot S & D

Good luck

Well i've just downloaded the file and it works perfectly. It may be that
the file has somehow got corrupted. Try downloading it again. When you click
on the .exe file that you downloaded you should first get an option to 'run'
the program. After clciking the run button you get the User Licence
agreement and then a command screen for creating the floopy disks.
