VMM32.VXD PROBLEMS on a new intel 433 ma

by wholzem1 In reply to VMM32.VXD PROBLEMS on a n ...

VMM32.VXD is affecionately known as "the gumball." It's created (re-created)each time the hardware tree is changed. Here's my method for dealing with gumball corruption:

1. If running Windows 95 with IE 4 or 5, uninstall IE first. If using Windows 98,or if IE 4 or 5 was never installed on Windows 95, skip to step 2.

2. Reinstall Windows from the DOS prompt. If your CAB files are on a CD-ROM, make sure your real-mode CD-ROM drivers are loaded. Use the command line: <path>\setup.exe -p f .
(Make sure there is a space between the -p and the f.) This switch means setup doesn't just refresh a couple of files; it rebuilds the hardware tree from scratch.

3. Install any driver updates.

4. Re-install ie 4 or 5, if applicable.

If your OEM version of Windows is one of those that doesn't include a setup.exe file, there's going to be more work involved than this.

I found that when I have any VXD errors in a Win98 system, that you can go to the run command and type sfc then enter. SFC stands for system file checker. After starting sfc follow the on screen comments and if the program pops a system file that may be corrupt, then follow the directions on replacing the corrupt system file with an original system file from the win98 cd. That normally will take care of the problem on a win98 system.
