win95 error after Vredir.vxd patch loade

By jrinehart ·
We have an NT 4.0 network running win 95/98 desktops. We loaded Vredir.vxd patch from Microsft for win 95 machines because we had problems running Aceess97 datbases and we found this may be the fix?? Some of the machines are comming up with Windows (blue screen) errors on startup. They happens randomly and not everyday? A few machines are ok. More than half are getting blue screen everyday? All have Win95 B loaded? What can I do to fix this problem? Can I uninstall a Microsoft Patch? or istheir a fix?

I would run a test on a single workstation. Remove the client and tcp/ip then reboot.Re-install both and when the machine starts copying files do not accept the newer versions of files.This should "uninstall" the patch. Let it run and see if the problem reoccurs. Also make sure SR-2 for office97 is installed.

1. If you've loaded the VREDIR.VXD file on an NT machine, remove it. It's not used on NT.
2. On Win95 & 95b machines, make sure you've installed the version "4.00.950" version of VREDIR.VXD file in \windows\system and have removed or renamed allother instances of this file. This file (138k, or 140,343 bytes) is the only one that works. You can find it on an old Win95 (first version) install.

All Win95 versions of this file (there are 3!) except this original one had file & record lockproblems on a network. It was fixed in Win98. Don't use this old file on Win98 any version.
