16-bits windows-subsystem

Question: 16-bits windows-subsystem

Since last week I get an error message when I try to open certain programs.

I have probably installed some new software, but have no idea how to solve this. Does anyone have a clue?

The message I get (in Dutch, but I will try to translate)

C:\windows\systems32\autoexec.nt. Het systeembestand is niet geschikt voor MS-DOS en Microsoft Windows-toepassingen, Kies sluiten om de toepassing af te sluiten

C:\windows\systems32\autoexec.nt. The systemfile does not support MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose close to exit this application.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

my desktop is Dell XPS 730. it currently using Vista 32 bits. Everything runs very slow and none of games are runnable due frames dropping, skipping, and freezing even after I installed new Hard Drive. I decided upgrade to Windows 7 64 bits would help with running minecraft game without issue.

I downloaded Windows 7 USB DVD download tool and Windows 7 64 bits ISO. it installed into flash drive successful but it came with bootsect error. So I looked around for it and found here 32-Bit BootSect

I downloaded "bootsect7600x86.zip". I right clicked and clicked on Properties and clicked unblock then applied and clicked ok. Then opened and I only find Bootsect exe file, nothing else. so I clicked that and command prompts came up and disappeared really instant and nothing ever happened. What am I missing? I also need Window 7 64 bits for my laptop after new HDD arrive. Just needed to make USB bootable somehow.

EDIT: I did right clicked on that exe file and did not see "run as admin"

EDIT2: Forgot to add, do I need to have product key code? Im upgrading my desktop from vista 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit

Answer:Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

The term is bit, not bits

Use WintoBootic to put the iso on the flash drive, it works perfectly everytime.

WiNToBootic bootable usb drive windows vista/7/8 - Bootable USB | Bootable USB

Where are you downloading the iso from, I would download it again and check the size when you`re done.

Home Premium and Professional 64 Bit are both 3.09 GBs

Hey,
as the title says, I find myself in a dilema..

It started when I decided I wanted to put a total of 4GB of RAM in my computer. The problem is that I have Windows XP x86 (32-bits) installed.
Then, a few friends of mine adviced me to get rid of this old Windows XP (32-bits), get the total of 4GB of RAM and install Windows 7 x64.

My CPU's architecture supports x64 systems, as I have 4 cores. My main problem, is that I would have to reinstall all my programs, applications and drivers (because I have the 32-bits-versions installed) and that if I stay with my 32-bits-XP system, it would only read 3 to 3.5GB of RAM aprox.

In response to this, a friend told me that Windows 7 x64 wouldn't cause compatibility issues with those 32-bit programas, applications and drivers. However, if I'd like to get the best performance, I would have to download/get the x64-compatible-versions..

To sum it up, I would really like if you experts could help me and get me out of this dilema. Is it true what my friends mentioned me? Should I change and get the new Windows 7 x64? Which would be the downsides and which the upsides?

I would also like to mention that I am a still and motion graphics designer, and that the latest softwares for that (for instance all Adobe CS4) have come out x64.This would definitely be a plus if I change to Windows 7 x64, right?

Thank you very, very much.. Really.
Best regards,
Chris.

Have just brought a new pc which has Windows XP home edition already installed on it, it does not come with a windows cd, and i am now finding i'm having problems when trying to load software. I am getting the following message when trying to load a cd:-

16 BIT WINDOWS SUBSYSTEM

C:\WINDOWS\SYS32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and MICROSOFT windows applications.

CLOSE OR IGNORE.

Ignore doesn't do anything

I am also experiencing the same sort of problem when i try to go on the internet. The message reads:-

16 BIT MS-DOS SUBSYSTEM

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\COMMAND.COM
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and MICROSOFT windows applications.

CLOSE OR IGNORE. Choose close or ignore but you can still get on the internet.

Why I am getting these messages and how can I get rid of them?

Hello Tech Support Guy Nation,

So I have an issue with getting a laptop hooked onto the router signal. The router is a brand spankin new Linksys EA4500 and the laptop is an IBM which is running Win XP (not sure of SP version as it is a customer's comp. at a hotel I run). Anyway, the error message I am encountering is:

The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters

At first I thought is was my router password since it contained a $ symbol so I changed it to only letters and numbers but still didn't work. I have never encountered this error message on any laptops and no other rooms have been affected. Thank you as always for the the knowledge...
 

Answer:Solved: Error Message:"The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending.

You are using WPA or WPA2 encryption and the laptop--because of the lack of at least service pack 2, incorrect wireless driver, or old wireless adapter--does not support WPA(2).

This is a rather unsual error message from Windows 7, that cannot even run 16-bits programs, quote:

"Too many other files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of files in your Config.sys file."

The only time that this issue shows up is when trying to run a program as administrator from within my standard user account. The "Run as..." could be initiated either manually, or by running a program that requires elevated access rights to the system, such as starting an installation as a standard user.

The error is seemed to be triggered by the UAC, or more accurately the "consent.exe" file that actually locks up the screen and nothing can be accessed. It seems that the system is waiting for input for the UAC, clicking anywhere on the screen results in the typical error sound but nothing else. The "ctrl-alt-del" does bring up a list, selecting log out pops up the quoted error message during the logoff process. Logging back in with the same UID seems normal, until the "Run as..." initiated and the system seems locked again. Rebooting the system clears up this error, but it does come back in an irregular interval. The timeframe could be from an hour, or more, on some days it does not come back at all.

While Windows 7 64-bit does not have a "config.sys" file, one has been added to "C:\" that contains:

Answer:16-bits program error message in 64-bits W7...

Well, having the "config.sys" file did not help. The system still have the same issues as posted earlier. Removing EMET 3.5 didn't help either...

Other than the "Run as...", the system works fine with any other programs. While I could grant administrator access to my user account, I'd prefer not to do it.

Would anyone have an idea what could cause this issue?

I installed Autocad 2010 in window 7(64 bits). I couldn't install because Autocad software software is 32 bits. Window 7 is 64 bits. So it couldn't not install. So I would like to know how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7.

Answer:how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7

32 bit software will run on 64 bit Windows 7 without any special steps being taken. Windows 7 64 bit actually maintains a 32 bit registry in order to accommodate 32 bit programmes.If you cannot install Autocad the problem is likely to be something more that the 32/64 bit difference. There is the possibility that it wouldn't even install on 32 bit Widows 7 and it is the OS itself that is the problem.You need to contact Autocad and see what they say about the problem, after all they know there own software better than anyone else.Stuart

Hello Dare2winnn,

It's recommended to use a 64-bit AV program on a 64-bit OS for full protection. Some 32-bit AV programs will not install on a 64-bit OS.

I just use the included Windows Defender.

Can someone explain these figures to me? Im talking about 8 Bits/channel in terms of imagery and pictures. I dont really get these. Is it the smaller the number, the better the picture? And, I heard that there are also different colour channels? Like Red and Blue channels, are these just the channels in which the computer can read and identify?And what about 48 bit colour? Is that in the same category as 8 Bits/channel? Or is it something totally different.I need to know more about colours.Thanks.

Answer:48 bits 16 bits 8 Bits Channel.

Essentially, bits per channel represents colour depth, the higher the bits per channel, the higher the range of distinct colours. This should explain better than I could click hereAnd when your finished reading that click here for answers to your colour channels query.

Answer:16 bit windows subsystem

Hiya

Take a look at this thread:

http://forums.techguy.org/t284538.html

Does it have a version tab as mentioned here:

First off, lets doublecheck that its a 16-bit program:

1. Use Windows Explorer to open the folder that contains the program's executable (.exe) file.
2. Right-click the .exe file, and then click Properties.
3. A 16-bit program does not have a Version tab in this dialog box.

If it does, then can you post the contents of your AUTOEXEC.NT and Config.NT:

Go to Find Files, and type

Autoexec.nt

Then, doubleclick to open. Choose Notepad or Wordpad from the list, but make sure Always Use this program... is UNTICKED.

Then, copy/Paste here

Answer:16 Bit Windows Subsystem

For some reason the installation of SP2 can cause a file called "AUTOEXEC.NT" to be corrupted or deleted. This file is part of the Windows 16-bit subsystem and usually lives in the system32 folder.

What's happening when you get this error is that the setup for that program uses InstallSheild which is a 16-bit program. Since the AUTOEXEC.NT file is missing, it can't run the install program. Not everyone who installs SP2 will have this problem, but we've had several calls and emails about it.

Fortunately there is a backup of the file living on your hard drive.

Double click "My Computer" then your hard drive (probably C drive) and open the "WINDOWS" folder.

Open "SYSTEM32" and see if the "AUTOEXEC.NT" file is in there. Chances are it isn't. If it is, then it's probably corrupt. Arrow up or hit "Back" to return to the main WINDOWS folder.

Go down to "Repair" and double click. You should find "autoexec.nt" and "config.nt" in there. Copy these files (Ctrl+C) then go back to SYSTEM32 and paste them there (Ctrl+V). It will ask you if you want to replace the old one?click "Yes".

That should do it. Now try installing that program and it should work fine

What does this mean? Could I have a virus preventing me from running these two programs. I need to type a resume ASAP.

Mike was so nice to forward a procedure on how to correct this. I did fairly well but when it asked me to find the %systemroot% file, I didn't know how..

Okay are you useing a 64 Bit system? Like XP X64 or VIsta 64? If so that is the problem. The 64 Bit systems dont have a 16Bit subsystem built into them anymore. Only 32 Bit systems do. The 64 Bit systems use a 32Bit sub-system.

If you have an XP disc (retail, oem or restore). Insert your XP disc into the CD drive and open it.You will see a folder named i386, open it and resize the window so you are able to see the desktop.In the folder you will find the file autoexec.nt_; - right click on it, drag it to your desktop and select copy here.To use WinZip to expand the file:-Open WinZip and drag the file into the main window - choose extract - on the screen which comes up make sure "all files" is selected then in the main window above expand C: then expand WINDOWS, click on System32 to highlight the folder and finally choose extract.The file should now be in System32 folder.If you do not have a disc, the file can be downloaded from here - click here

Let me try posting again...I tried the Microsoft solution to this but still I get the same error.

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

Some other guy posted this, and on other forums, when THEY click close, everything closes. This error occurs to me only when I start 3D Studio MAX 5. and it works perfectly fine, no matter what I press 'Ignore' or 'close'.
But still I wanna get rid of it.

I think the error occured after my last SpyBot scan, but I don't wanna undo its changes just yet, so those crappy things wouldn't spread on my system, not that they can...but you never know.

So any suggestions?

Again, I did try Microsoft suggestions, and replaced that file with a new one, but still I get the same error.

Answer:16 bit windows subsystem error

IN XP Pro it's worth copying the file autoexec.nt from the Windows\Repair directory into Windows\System32. In XP Home I believe it lives in WIndows\i386 so copy from Repair to that directory.

I am using XP Pro and have done so for a year or more. Yesterday, when I tried to open a certain program which I used only a couple of weeks ago quite satisfactorily the following happened:-A message appeared headed "16 Bit Windows Subsystem" The message read "This system file is not suitable for running MSDOS and Microsoft Windows applications". I am not all that technically minded and therefore have no idea what this message means. Can any of you young techies elucidate and tell me what to do to get my programs running again. Is XP Pro not 32 bits?Porridge (82)
