E.F.M.I ( MI4 ) Installation Problem!

Hi! I've searched, and I didn't found the solution for my problem! The game menu starts ( Install , Help , Options , Exit ) , And when I click in "Install" , an error appears! ( I'm Portuguese, so I will try to explain in english! ), ( The Title is : "Subsistem 16 Bits ) - "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CONFIG.NT. The File Of The System Isn't "Good" to execute MS-DOS and aplications of Microsoft Windows. Choose "Close" To Exit the aplication" ( In Portuguese : C:\... . O Ficheiro de Sistema não é adequado para executar MS-DOS e aplicações do Microsoft Windows. Escolha "Fechar" para terminar a aplicação )... I Don't Know how to solve this... In My Brother's Computer, ( It's Better than mine! ) The Game Starts Installing... And I remember that Some years ago ( In XP ! ), the game don't have this prob.... ( Microsoft Windows XP Profissional 2002 Service Pack 2 ) , ( Intel Pentium III , 551 MHz, 256 MB Ram )

Thanks !! Obrigado !! ;-)

P.S - Sorry If My English Is Bad = P!!

If you use a 64-bit processor and operating system, you can't use 16-bit installers (which a lot of games came with a while ago, even if the game itself was 32-bit). There may be a way to bypass the installer completely, but you'd need someone like bgbennyboy (who I'll divert to this thread at some point, and who made an alternative installer for Grim Fandango) to help with that.

Since your error mentions 16-bit, this may very well be the issue.

You also didn't say what version of Windows you are trying to install on.
