    I wanted to install my epson c44ux printer on my windows xp pro os, (1024mb ram and g/byte m/b and amd2800+barton) but the auto run option brought up the message "16 bit subsystems error" with two options to close or ignore both do the same as far as i know. so i read a thread that said to cut and paste autoexe.nt file from the Windows/repair folder and paste it in the Windows/system32 folder for this guys game, so i did it too thinking it would work but i no longer get the message "16 bit subsystems error" i get the application on the task bar but no display of it so i right click the task bar and i get "move" or "close" i cant see it to move it so i close i see an app. looking like it closes in the background, and probably running in the background.
    All is running from the installation cd that came with pc.

    whats going on with this thing.??
