Hi when installing my disk for the digital camera after an xp upgrade, I cant get it to load. The pc accepts all the files but I now have to instal and it won't do it with the error box stating msdos and 16 bit progs not able to run or instal. Some one told me how to fix this problem with knowledge base write up. I need to access %systemroot%\system folder, config.nt file, autoexec .nt file, command.com file, but cannot find them. Help please to locate. 2cv6

%systemroot% is C:\windows

assuming that your boot drive letter is C:

c:\windows\system32\config.nt

c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt

c:\windows\system32\command.com

Hi no progress yet.
I found config.nt in win\sys32 folder and am to copy it and paste to sys32 folder where it came from??????????
Cannot locate autoexec.nt, which has to go into sys32 folder and also cannot find command.com to do the same. They dont seem to be in the sys32 folder [big isn't it] Also the command.com file has to be expanded before being pasted to the sys32 folder. Don't know how to do this.Where would it end up to be able to be found. I can send the kb article number if you wish. Thanks 2cv6.

KB article is click here ?

Can you find autoexec.nt in C:\Windows\repair ?

If you can, copy it into C:\windows\system32

Hi VoG, That's the article ok, but it has me so confused. I thought things were logical, but apparently not. Yes the 2 files config.nt and autoexec.nt are in the repair folder. What do I do now? what do I do about expanding the command.com file and where can I find it?. The disc with xp on doesn't work, so it seems, as sp2 is installed. All this has happened because I upgraded to xp and the Ricoh digital camera wouldn't work.Can't figure out why the disk won't download like it did with 98se and winme.2cv6

Try just copying the config.nt and autoexec.nt from the Repair folder to the System32 folder. To do this, for each file in turn, Right click on it, select Copy. Go to the System32 folder, right click in a blank area and select Paste.

Check if that fixes it.

Hi Sattman, tried all these downloads, unzipped them but they will not download to the pc programme for Ricoh rdc6000 camera. Will go ahead with VoG IDEA. tHANKS. 2CV6

Hi VoG, the 2 files are now in the system 32 folder. Now, how do we find and expand the command.com file. Thanks 2cv6
