I had a question earlier dealing with installing a CD-ROM software instilation. That question can be seen here.
In that instance I was getting two error messages. The first was taken care of as a result of that question but I am still having trouble with the instalation of the software. When I get to six percent instalation it stops and just sits there unresponsive. When I click on it it gives the (not responding) notice in the menu bar. Once I try to close it I get a message as follows.
"The request to end the selected 16 bit task has timed out. The Win 16 subsystem may be unstable. Press OK to terminate the Win 16 subsystem or cancel to keep it running"
Whether I choose OK or Cancel...the program closes. I understand that the most common cause of this problem is the config.nt file or the autoexec.nt file being corrupted or missing. I have followed these directions several times...as well as the the connected directions with this question.
I have replaced those files using the method of creating a new nt file and also tried cutting and pasting from a working XP Pro operating system. Neither of these things worked. I am still locking up at 6% instalation.
