I am trying to install "The Sims" on my computer and when I press install I get a message that says, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32|AUTOEXEC.NT The system File is not suitable for running MS_DOS and Microsoft Widows applications. I don't know much about computers, I have a Sony Viao with Windows XP, any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Sims requires a Windows 9x Operating System. Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me.

It was not designed for Windows NT Operating Systems. Such as,...

Windows NT 1, 2, 3, or NT4. Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows .NET Server 2003.

So you must Install The Sims using Windows 98 Combatibility mode.

Windows XP Sevice Pack 2 is known to cause decreased compatibility with some older software, or games. Whether a Compatibility mode is used, or not.

you need to copy an autoexec.nt file into the appropriate directory. You can find one on the internet. I SHOULD close this because I know for a FACT this will solve the solution but I will wait until you post here letting me know this fixed it

You don't necessarily need to search through the internet but can also ask a friend of yours to eMail his. And as Crash I'm 100% sure too this will solve your problem :)
