HELP! Tenacious Fatal Exception Error / DirectX 5
Posted on 1997-09-21
I am running Windows95 OSR2 on a Pentium Pro200 Dell
Dimension XPSPro200n. Latest BIOS, drivers, etc. My problem
is that during a given Win95 session, the control panel,
in response of "closing" or "Xing" it, will cause this messgae to appear: 'A fatal exception 0E has occured at
0028:C0298C19 in VXD IFSMGR(04) +0000D4F1.' After pressing any key, the computer works normally. It seems to have appeared after either DirectX 5.0 or the Matrox Millenium I with 4MB 3.70 drivers. The Millenium has BIOS 2.70. The motherboard, a Natoma 440FX Intel VS440FX has BIOS A05/1.11.CS1. Everything else from Corel 7, Office 97, Lotus Suite 97, etc, runs fine, without exception, no pun intended. This just happens when closing control panel. It is utterly annoying and is woth a lot of points.
