In the beginning there was the command line. yes i got this error message after i installed win98 and reboot, even with or without the cd on the cd-drive. What is VMM32.VXD: To try and explain why what these sites tell you is wrong, you need to know what vmm32.vxd is. Now there may come a time, when one of the *.vxd files built into vmm32.vxd needs to be updated, and Win9x provides a very simple means for this. Source
Now shut down your PC manually and restart. As you may have gathered, since the VMM32.VXD in use on your system was custom created for you system based on its requirements, it is one file that you cannot simply Press Del immediately when the startup starts and you shall see the CMOS (Bios) screen. Open the CDROM and insert the Win98 CD. https://www.easydesksoftware.com/news/news10.htm
I bought 95 & 98 the first few days after release and had to go through all the garbage that entailed. A more forgiving reason (it you want to call it that), although unlikely based on the details of what is being said, is that a person whose vmm32.vxd file got corrupted equals CD-ROM drive identification and that identification required for your computer may be different.4.

Choose quick format to save time. Caveat: Not every CD-ROM drive is supported by the drivers included on the Windows 98 Startup disk/EBD. I noticed that some software vendors put the files in the Iosubsys folder instead. WhitPhil, Jan 12, 2006 #4 samustdie Thread Starter Joined: Jan 12, 2006 Messages: 10 sori late reply!!!
So as I said just above, back it up now and you don't have to worry about this. I don't even have Mcafee enabled any longer (it may even have been uninstalled) cause I had my virus protection thru netzero at the time it went down.

You can find a list of all the files inside the Vmm32.vxd file at the Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ System\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ VMM32Files. Is this happening during one of the reboots after the install? I've tried the recovery disk, but when i go thru the steps and hit start recovery, nothing happens.

I don't think you will be using this batch file often enough to worry about combining filenames on an extract command line to save a little time by extracting multiple files http://winnthosting.com/general/windows-command-com.html The computer runs perfectly under all other conditions.

Between the stripped headers and the compression used in vmm32.vxd it is considerably smaller that all the individual files, contributing to its faster load time. Microsoft says that Extracting system files that are rolled into VMM32.VxD will not increase system performance, once you are started, there will be no difference. have a peek here Now compare your list of file of files to be extracted to those files that currently exist in your \Windows\system\vmm32 directory.

If you have a friend with a computer they could access "BootDisk.com" which is a good source for acquiring a copy of an EBD/Startup disk for the particular version of Windows.a. If not, you will need to do this from the Windows\Command folder, adjusting the paths accordingly. That should force the creation of a new VMM32.VXD file, and that problem should be history. For those of you who have WinSafe, it automatically monitors and backs up the Vmm32.vxd file, it will even tell you if the file is missing or changed before shutting down
VMM32.VXD is the virtual memory manager. Depending on your system speed this batch file may take a while to execute due to the simple way it was written which caused only one file to be extracted from To make a Batch file type each command on one line, then go to the next line and type the next command.

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. So just copying it from somewhere else isn't a good idea.Read about it in http://www.helpwithwindows.com/techfiles/vmm32.html I'm afraid a new install is the best (if not the only) way to proceed. If the Vmm32.vxd file is damaged or missing Windows will not boot, so you have three choices. 1.You can obtain it from a backup. Good luck; keep us posted.
