vmm32.vxd

By jhicks ·
We have a customer that that we recently installed a network for. They were running terminals off of a unix box but wanted to upgrade to a PC Network. We went in and set up the peer to peer network on 8 Windows 9x machines. Everything went well.Some of the PCs were brand new and some were old existing machines. For the old w\ones we had to install 10/100 ethernet cards. We had also installed a copy of Winproxy 3.0 on an old pentium 75 machine which was their only connection to the internet. Again everything worked fine. I just got a fax from the customer saying that the Winproxy machine has been acting up (locking up etc..)
They were getting an error at boot up as follows: c:\windows\system\vmm32.vxd : missing/unable to load. They can now only start up in Safe Mode. Does anyone have any ideas of what might be causing this???

If there's a scanner attached to that machine, look here:

OK, run scandisk first to try and repair the FAT. If that fails, you're gonna have to rebuild the drive.

If it works, see if it fixes the vxd problem. If not, then proceed as above.

A virtual device driver is a 32 bit protected mode driver that manaages a system resource,such as hardware,it loads base driversspecified in the registry
Hkey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD
Using the system start up disk you may be aable to reinstall the files without going into the Registry.
It loads the drivers for hardware and a device is causing a conflict
