When I try to run ActiveHome I get an error message like this: "Autoexec.nt - The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications." What can I do?
The autoexec.nt file has gone missing from the System folder (C:\Windows\System32) or is invalid. The problem may have been caused by a recent software installation, a virus, or spyware.
- To resolve this error, navigate to the folder C:\Windows\Repair in Windows Explorer.
- Right-click and select Copy
- Go to C:\Windows\System32 and type Ctrl+V.
- This will overwrite the current version of the file with the backup copy.
