    1. Insert the CD into the CD drive or DVD drive.

    2. Click Start, and then click Run.

    3. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.

    4. At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\config.nt_ c:\windows\system32\config.nt
    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt
    expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32\command.com
    exit

    5. Start or install the program. If the issue is resolved, do not complete the remaining steps. If the issue is not resolved, go to the next step.

    6. Note: The Command.com file is not edited or created in this in the following process. Because of this, you may have to expand it from your Windows XP CD-ROM.

    Start Notepad.

    device=%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\himem.sys
    files=40

    9. In the File Name box, type Config.nt, and then click Save. Close the Config.nt file.

    11. In the new blank document, type the following entries: @echo off
    lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\mscdexnt.exe
    lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\redir
    lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\dosx
    SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 P330 T3

    12. On the File menu, click Save As.

    13. In the File Name box, type Autoexec.nt, and then click Save. Close the Autoexec.nt file.

    14. Start Windows Explorer. Locate the Config.nt file, right-click the Config.nt file, and then click Copy.

    15. Right-click the %SYSTEMROOT%\System32 folder, and then click Paste.

    16. Locate the Autoexec.nt file, right-click the Autoexec.nt file, and then click Copy.

    17. Right-click the %SYSTEMROOT%\System32 folder, and then click Paste.

    18. Locate the Command.com file, right-click the expanded Command.com file, and then click Copy.
