I have discovered that some machines running the same version of win95 don't have vwin32.vxd installed.
I thought this vxd was essential for loading of other vxds.
Thanks
Richard

Nope, only if you're using VWIN32 apps.

A virtual device driver (VxD) is a 32 bit protected mode driver that manages a system resource or installed software, so that more than one application can use the resource at the same time. VxD refers to a general virtual device driver -the x represents the type of device driver, For example, a virtual device driver for a display device is known as a VDD, a driver for as timer device is a VTD, printers are VPD and so forth. Windows 95 dynamically loads all VxD's-only those that are needed at any given time are loaded into memory. As far as that particular VXD, the machine I am currently typing at now does not have that file either, but that does not mean it is not in a CAB file, waiting for the right application to load.
