Windows 95 VM Missing files

By Tyharo ·
After attempting to put windows 95 on my old laptop (ended in blue screen) I've gone to putting Windows 95 on my virtual machine (virtual box). After going through all the setup towards the end of the installation i get an error saying that it cant find a file and after messing with it more i noticed it was missing alot of files. I wcan go past the error by pressing cancel but when i try to isntall drivers and virtual box additions I get the same error saying that its missing files. It askes me to insert the windows 95 CD and to locate the WIN 95 Folder. Even if the CD is in and the vm is told where it is I still get the same error. This ruins games and I am unable to change display options. Is there any way to fix this?

Fixed Half

Well after much trial and error we fixed the start up issue. Now the only problem we are having is the ability to install virtual box guest additions, when we try to install the editions we get an error saying "The VBOXWINDOWSADDITIONS.EXE file is linked to missing export SHELL32.DLL:ShellExecuteExW". Any idea how to fix this issue? Is it the virtual box or the windows 95?

WIn95 doesn't support the guest additions

Not for any of the VM providers. Sorry. You are stuck with the 8mb virtual card that functions like a 2mb virtual card....
