Thumbs up

I was suprised to find a side full of enthousiast members who know and still play games like COLONIZATION 1995 and PG (PANTZER GENERAL) 1994.

As quickly as I could I downloaded both games cause I enjoyed them for years at my old computer, but I apparently cannot play them at my current computer.

I've got the following window on my screen after eecuting one of the games:

"C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/AUTOEXEC.NT. this file is not suitable to run MSDOS or Microsoft Windows Applications" :bleh:

Who can solve this problem for me?
We will afterwards!

Many thanks,
COLPG4045

Use Dosbox or VDMSound. They're both available on this site.

*edit*

Also, I think you posted this in the wrong forum.

Use this tutorial to get most of DOS titles to run.

In fact, had you posted in the right part of the forum, or searched for it, you might first have noticed the STICKY WITH TITLE DESCRIBING YOUR PROBLEM.
