It doesnt want to start it says what im describeing.


From http://support.microsoft.com/kb/194679:

Cause:
This behavior can occur if the Windows\System folder is missing or renamed, or if the PATH line in the Autoexec.bat file is missing or does not include the Windows\System folder.

To resolve this behavior, use the appropriate method:

Method 1 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');
  1. At the command prompt, type: dir vmm32.vxd /s If the Vmm32.vxd file is not found, you must install Windows 95 or Windows 98 again. If the Vmm32.vxd file is found, note the folder in which it is located, and then continue with step 2.

  2. At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command cd windows
    ren folder system
    where folder is the folder you noted in step 1.

  3. Restart your computer.

Method 2 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Using a text editor (such as Notepad), edit the Autoexec.bat file and add or modify the PATH line so that it includes the Windows\System folder. For example, add the following line to your Autoexec.bat file: path=c:\windows\system


Hope this helps,

Hi... my problem is my PC cannot find a VMM32.VXD


You can find instructions on how to get around this issue here. You will need to be able to boot to a command prompt from a Windows Startup disk. When using these instructions, be very careful about the commands you enter. You must make sure you don't mistype anything since it could cause more problems.

The following file is missing or corrupted; C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32.VXD type the name of the windows loader (e. g., C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32.VXD)


That is a special file, created during Windows installation. Every computer uses a different VMM32.VXD file, so you can't simply copy one from another system and expect it to work.

If you can't find that file by searching the system in DOS, you could wipe the drive and reinstall Windows again, or do a repair install, installing Windows on top of itself. That should force the creation of a new VMM32.VXD file, and that problem should be history.

If you DO find the file somewhere on the HDD through a DOS search, copy it into the Windows\System folder, then reboot the system.
