Win95 and VB3 (VREDIR)

We have purchased an app written in VB3 on our NT network.  All the clients are running Win95, and we are using TCP/IP.

I have tried with a clean install of 95, I have also tried with a clean install of Win95b, and both times I cannot run the app.  I can run it locallaly, but not accross the network.

The error I get is -

"A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0028:C0298E5F in VXD VREDIR(04) + 0000C51B.  The current applicatino will be terminated."

I would appreciate any feedback on this matter, as it is becoming quite urgent.

Thanks in advance,
Chris

What is the Application?  Have you tried another Network card?  Looking for different NIC drivers.

It is a banking application, and I have used two network cards, being a DE205 and a DE435.

Strangely, one PC worked once with it, but I cannot find the common denominator...

Are you changing directory to networkdrive before you call your program ?
If so, could it be something with missing dll or vxd files on networkdrive.
When it works locally, are you changing to the specific directory before calling program ?

No, the shortcut points directly to the executable.
If there were a missing DLL or VXD files, I would not expect it to work on a single PC, unless THAT PC has the missing files...hmmm...something to investigate.
And for the last question - no....

I am sure that you are missing some dll or vxd file. I have had errors like yours, when I make a shortcut to a program on a networkdrive.

Try to make a batch file like this:

networkdrive:
cd\your program directory
your program

Call this batch by a shortcut and set mark on Close by exit i properties (I am not sure witch text there is next to checkbox, I work on a danish version)
