When you install Peachtree Accounting for MS-DOS version 7.0 under Windows NT, if you attempt to restart the computer when prompted by Peachtree's setup program, you may receive one of the following error messages:

The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.


ERROR Writing to LPT1: for Document Remote Downlevel Document: The device is not ready

Do you wish to retry or cancel the job?


Windows NT will not allow Peachtree to restart the computer. Always choose No when prompted during the installation. To workaround the above error messages, close Peachtree and restart it.
