I've windows xp home installed on my system...... TC doesn't work when i execute it ...an error message shows up sayin' ...............

"C:\tc\tc\Bin\TC.EXE
C:\WINDOWS|SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications.Choose 'Close' to terminate the application. "

Can I make it work somehow... I guess there must be a solution ..earlier it used to work perfectly

Hoping for some solution.........!!!!

actually I know that solution.but the problem is a bit extended.....when I copy the necessary files in c:\windows\system32 ..... TC starts working but when i restart my computer the autoexec.nt automatically gets deleted from there and TC gives the same error.what's the problem?? For now...i have made a batch file that copies autoexec.nt to that directory and sits in the startup .. and TC works then. but I want a concrete solution and the reson it happens !!!!!!

1) Have you tried running it under command instead of cmd?
2) You can try marking your TC executable as 95 compatible.  It may work.

Windows XP does not support any 16-bit application and you will have to make some changes in OS level...........
