Did a quick search on some other newsgroups for similar issue. It appears that the vvines.386 file is associated with the Banyan Vines network protocol. It would have been installed when adding this protocol or some applicaction installed it when the application was installed.

You can do a couple of different things here. If you are certain that the file is needed then do a search of your hard drive to see if the file is there and record the location. Then you can change the pointer from z: to the correct location.

Now to find where the system is calling this file from. Click Start->Run and type in "msconfig" (no quotes). Click on the tab for SYSTEM.INI and go to the section marked [386enh]. Look for a line containing z:vvines.386. If you are sure you or any programs do not need this driver you can put a ";" (no quotes) at the beginning of the line to disable windows from loading the driver. If you do need this driver for something then replace the z: with the real location of the driver. Click on the OK button to save and close.

The driver could also be called from the registry. Be careful if you edit the registry. Always make a backup first. Click Start->Run and type "Regedit" (no qutoes) to start the registry editor. Press Ctrl-F (to find) and type vvines.386 in the find dialog and click the Find Next button. If you find a reference you can either correct it of delete it depending on your needs. Continue searching through the registry until you are at the end. When finished, close the registry editor and reboot. You should no longer get the error message.

You might also want to first check your network properties from the Control Panel and see if the Banyan Vines protocol is installed. If it is you should remove it, and, if it is needed you can add it back in. This way, you should not need to do any of the editing mentioined previously. If the protocol is not listed as installed then proceed as outlined above.

Cheers,

RW
