Can't install scanner. Error message etc.

Visioneer 5600 flatbed scanner. I've had it installed and working before. Now, though, when I insert the installation disc, the option screen appears and when I click Install this message appears:-

Heading:- 16 Bit Windows Subsystem

Main message:- C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose close to terminate the application.

I'm using Windows XP Home Editio, btw. What can I do to install the scanner?

Thank you, VoG! That did the trick alright.

I'm almost sure I've had that message before now, although for software rather than hardware.
