How can I get MS works 4.5 to work on XP
After I upgraded my pc to XP every thing seemed to be working fine untill I Tried to open MS Works 4.5
It loaded ok but when you open if a message flashes up that this"system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Micosoft applications"
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT

Have you run the Program Compatibility Wizard from Start>Programs>Accessories>PCW?
