    System Error message? (Hm Prem)

    When I try to open a program I get a message and I'm not sure what it means: The Win 16 subsystem was unable to enter Protected Mode, DOSX.EXE must be in your AUTOEXEC.NT and present in you PATH. Does anyone know the
    meaning of this? Thanx...

    The program is a OLDER 16 bit and my NOT be compatible with Vista. Check with the OEM of the program and see if there is a Vista version.

    Or post what the name and version of the program that you are having issues with.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanx for the reply. Now here's the part I really don't understand. I have two notebooks running Vista Hm Prem and this program is on both. The program was running fine on both notebooks until last night when the error message came up on unit B and still runs on unit A. This is the situation I don't get....

    But as Dave said, we're looking for a "pig in a poke" unless you give us some more to go on, Jimbo!
