XW95, TIE95, XvT and XP Service Pack 2

It has come to my attention that X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter and the Windows versions of X-Wing and TIE Fighter may not be able to install on some installations of Windows XP Service Pack 2, as the installation will generate the following error:

16 Bit Windows Subsystem

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.

The reason for this error is that the AUTOEXEC.NT file appears to be missing. This error affects new systems with XP SP2 as the included operating system as well as retail versions of Windows XP that include SP2. To fix it, you may find the above file in the Windows\Repair folder; just copy it to the Windows\system32 file. Upgrade installations of SP2 left the file alone; those users need not do anything.
