    Install Creator Error: 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

    I just downloaded and installed Install Creator V2.0 Build 24. I am trying out the program and get the following error when I run the uninstaller that is created as part of the install. I am running XP SP2. I could not find the error in any of the posts.

    The uninstaller appears to fully remove my app, but I get the following error. Any thoughts?

    Widow Title --> 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\command.com
    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.

    Buttons--> Close Ignore

    Here is the log from the package build.

    When it exits, the uninstaller runs a .bat file to remove itself. To run it in silent mode, it launches command.com. On some machines, it seems that sometimes a wrong command.com file is executed and generates this kind of error. It's quite rare though.

    With that, I renamed command.com in my system 32 folder and the unistaller works with no error. Put the name back to normal same error. Now that I know what it is, I want worry about it.


    Thanks

    The file AUTOEXEC.NT for running older programs sometimes seems to wander off for no reason that I can find - it happened to a friend's computer. Usually there's a duplicate of it on your hard drive, so searching for it and copying it to system32 should solve this problem.
