vserver.vxd error on startup

By Notretired ·
I recently did a clean install of 98 and then installed a Telocity DSL modem and a LinkSys network using LanBridge to share the connection with my laptop. It worked fine for a while now I keep getting an error saying that something in my registry is pointing to vserver.vxd and I do not have the file.

The Key is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Doc Find Spec MRU

I am a bit over my head, but am not willing to call in the troops just yet, any thoughts as to where this file went or if I ever had it, and more importantly what does it do?

Thanks in advance,

Peter

vserver.vxd error on startup

Vserver.vxd is the 32 bit server for Microsoft Networks. Somehow, it must have been corrupted. You might have uninstalled a program or a device. Or it might have been cross linked with other files during an abnormal exit of Windows. Sometimes you can rectify this by running Scandisk.

Anyway, you can find it on the Windows CD-ROM in Win95_11.cab. Extract and copy it to C:\windows\system. (Or you can copy it from another PC with Windows 95/98.)

Enjoy!

I couldn't find it on the install cd, but I did copy it from my laptop and viola'! Hopefully this will solve the "ip conflict" error message I've been getting as well. Another, why in network neighborhood can I only see an icon not the contense ofthat computer? (they are shared out.)

Answer 1 is right on the money, but the easiest way to extra any file is the command...

extract /a win98_02.cab vserver.vxd (or any file name for that matter).

What the /a does is processes the cab file you specified and any subsequent cabs after that. That way, if you don't know which cab the file resides in, it'll search it for you.

Do I do this at a DOS prompt?
