    Hello there,

    I have a problem with my new setup. I used to have an AMD XP 2600+ with Aopen motherboard and I recently upgraded to an AMD 64 3000+ with asus k8v motherboard. (rest of the specs r: 2 x 512 DDR, 120Gb HDD, 40Gb HDD, Windows XP Home Edition)
    Now I have a problem installing some problems. It says the program I am about to install is 16 bit and not ment for Windows or DOS and so the program doesn't install. (I have several programs with the same problem when I want to install them)
    For example the DVD Burning software I got with my DVD RW of Benq, or the drivers for my printer (Lexmark Z604). All these programs don't want to install giving the same installation problem. (very strange cause I had these programs installed without a problem on my old system)

    Anyone help please? (the burning software and the printer are important, I kinda need them)

    Cant upload the picture of the errormessage but basicly it says this: (it's in dutch anyway so)

    (title) 16 bit windows-subsystem
    c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suited for MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Press close to end the application.
