I am trying to reinstall some Psion software & I get the message "Config.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows". It was OK about a month ago, I have run sfc/ scanonce (on boot) but no improvement. Any ideas
I printed out the web page you pointed me to and tried this morning, but when I enter what it says at the command prompt I get the message "destination is not a directory" I have tried 3 times in case I have not entered the correct way but I still get the same answer. Do you know if this problem will affect other programs ? I know it says Windows 16 bit but I don't know what that means. I'm not really bothered about the Psion because I had problems with it before which made me uninstall. It was just that I thought I would have another go to see if I could cure the problems.
Just tried it on mine and it works. Have you put an installation disk in the drive? ""the device is not ready" is not an error message I would of expected, restart and shutdown all other programs including AV...everything! and retry.
If you don't have the disk and Windows is sat on the C: drive type this...
Still having problems,in case I am making another idiot mistake here is exactly what I have done. I put the WXP installation disc in e drive, clicked exit, then start/run/cmd then typed e:\i386\config.nt_ c:\windows\system32\config.nt I get a message "The system cannot find the patch specified" Thanks for your patience.
