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???

The VMM32.vxd is the Virtual Machine program tha allows multi-tasking. It maps a duplicate version of the first meg of memory to set up separate sessions for each program to run in as though that program owns the first meg of ram for itself. Did you run any old fashion 'Terminate Stay Ready' or TSR programs that interfere with the memory mapping? Are you using any old network cards? You might have a corrupt VVM32.vxd file. This is a hidden file to normal windows viewing but could be replaced. Try running 'System Information from System tools in accessories. From inside System Information click on tools and run system file checker to look for corrupt files. Also run a good memory diagnostic program over night and half it walk through all of the bits. Thats all I got

Try going to System tools in Accessories. Go to the tools drop down list, click system file checker. Click "Extract one from file disk" Type the name of the file you want to extract, in the Specify file you would like to restore box. Throw in theWin98 CD and click start. It sounds like you have a corrupt file. If it is, this will fix it, assuming the restore from location isn't corrupt. :)
