16-bit Windows Subsystem

By IQorEQ ·
Recently, I run into the problem anytime start Windows 2000 Pro with this little error windows "16 bit Windows Subsystem"
System\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers. VDD. Virtual Device Driver format in the Registry is invalid. CHOOSE "Close" to terminate the application [CLOSE] [IGNORE]

Either choosing [CLOSE] or [IGNORE], I always have problem to install some particular SW related to using HW. Any help would be grateful. Thank you.

I had similar problem with NortonAV VDD..
You registry has a corrupted value.
-Run Regedit and delete
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers\VDD
-Now run Regedt32.exe and Add Value name VDD as REG_MULTI_SZ type. Do not enter any value, just press OK and close regedt32.
You should be ok now.

Try re-isntalling w2k pro since apparently some win16 file got isntalled and is mucking up the start up.
