Major problem installing a scanner

  paddyjack 19:19 19 Nov 2005

Just bought a Mustek 1248ub scanner but try as I might I can not install the associate software. When I put the cd in the drive I get the initial welcome flash and then this error message

16 bit Windows Subsystem

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

thats it.

I have put it on a mates comp and it worked fine went on straight away. I have changed my cd dvd in cast it might be those no different. I have tried device manager no joy either, add new hardware same result.

Now at wits end, any ideas anybody.

C:\Windows\Repair & copy ‘autoexec.nt’ file and paste onto\into system32 folder (might work worth a try)
