Help with installation error.

I was just trying to install a couple of pieces of software to my XP PC. Both gave me the same error.
c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft applications. Choose "Close" to terminate the application.
Both are XP applocations (Chart software). Bad autoexec.nt file?

I'll give that a shot when I have access to my Windows CD. The program itself is an XP program, is it an issue with the installer being 16 bit?

I just tried running that patch and it gave me the same error
I guess I'll dig out my CD and try it manually.

edit: Manual fix worked, thanks!
