.nt - MS-DOS Subsystem Startup File

The NT other files are related to Microsoft Windows NT/2000/XP. NT file is a MS-DOS Subsystem Startup File. When an MS-DOS-based application is started, Windows NT/2000/XP executes files specified in the application's program information file (PIF) or the Autoexec.nt and Config.nt files in the SystemrootSystem32 directory. Any changes made in one of these files take effect as soon as the file is saved and a new MS-DOS-based application is started that uses that file. The Microsoft Windows NT/2000/XP seems to be no longer supported.

Can't open a .nt file?

When you double-click a file to open it, Windows examines the filename extension. If Windows recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When Windows does not recognize a filename extension, you receive the following message:

Windows can't open this file:


To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select one from a list of programs that are installed on your computer.

To avoid this error, you need to set the file association correctly.
