hmmm, very strange indeed... i've never even seen a message like that. i know i have to copy my autoexec back into my sys32 folder about every time my computer gets a inferiority complex and kills said autoexec.nt? which seems to be about once a week? i dunno, maybe its every time steam updates? I know its at least everytime i install something.

I did that and got a message that said no destination for E:\i386\autoexec.nt_c:\system23\autoexec.nt
It looks to me like you are trying to move the file to a destination folder that doesn't exist.

The file should be copied to:
c:\windows\system32\

You are currently trying to extract the file to:
c:\system23

Edit: And also remove the underscore _.

Hi, I'm new here in case anyone's interested. Okay well here's my problem: when I follow the instuctions above I get the message "the system cannot find the path specified". I know this is probly a simple problem with a simple solution but I don't know anything about software. How can I make it so it works?

Thanks

Did you unzip without paths? If everything's in one folder then you did; it needs to be unzipped with paths.

because some people may experience this problem, sometimes a config.nt error message will pop up if if its not installed here: [yourdrivehere]/program files/noctis This happened to me once and i couldn figure out why noctis wasnt working for 2 days...

NICE uses its own autoexec.nt and confic.nt, and Azuraun, possibly it was having trouble reading them from whatever path you had NICE in? (What was the path they were in when they didn't work, by the way?)

And Webmonster: I don't see a license file in that zip anywhere, or a readme, or anything, so I'm guessing that you're violating the copyright of the author of that program by posting it here, and you should remove it and instead link to their website. (But I didn't run the program, so if there's a license which is shown when you run it, I didn't see it)

Also I'd be a little suspicious of random programs posted by random people with no readme file, or any links to the website of whoever made it, etc.

it was installed in:
C:\Documents and Settings\Azuraun\My Documents\Noctis

im not sure why it matters where its installed, but apparently it does.

If the path is too long it wouldn't be able to stick the path to the autoexec and config files in the PIF, but Go is supposed to tell you if that's the case. I don't know why you would get that error from windows - Go should be telling you the path is too long if it really is. Hmm.

Edit:
The limit is 64 characters. That path is 53, but it'd need 19 more for "modules\autoexec.nt" - Hmm, actually the checks look like they might screw up around 64 characters, but you've got way more. It should need 21 to include a leading \ and a NULL terminator, but I'm not sure the NULL is strictly necessary.

72 is way too long though, and Go should have said "Sorry, the path is too long, so we can't set up the optimized PIF files!"

P.S. There isn't much I can do about this, since the path length limit is a hardcoded limitation in the PIF file format. Hm, although I could move autoexec.nt and config.nt into the noctis folder (out of modules), which would save 8 characters - which probably wouldn't have been enough to make it work for you anyways.

Edit #2: I'm assuming, of course, that you didn't get that error message (which I think is about as clear as it could be) and then try to play anyways. Even if the error isn't clear, it's elaborated on in troubleshooting.txt. Probably I shouldn't assume this, since we occasionally have people post here to say "Hey it says the path is too long and I need to put it somewhere with a shorter path - what does that mean?" ... Can anyone come up with a simpler way to explain the problem and solution? Maybe it would help. Maybe people don't understand what path means, or path length, hmm...
