I have received the following message:

"A Fata Exception OE has occurred at 0028:C023197B in VXD VMM(OO) + 0000197B.  The current application will be terminated..."

Can you tell me what this means?

What were you doing when you received the error message?  What applications were running?  What little utilities were open in the system tray?

The message itself sounds generic.  Windows crashed.  Does this happen often?

It means that at the specific area of memory(of the vxd file)0028:C023197B and error has occured. This could mean that the VXD (a virtual device driver) is either corrupted or it is no working properly. You can fix it by rebooting or reinstalling the software that crashed.

My system crashed for the first time while I was running Colorado' tape backup.  I ran this application several times with different backup specs and tapes.  The result was continued system crashes.  I switched to Seagate's tape backup and got this system crash message several times.

Did you upgrade from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95 after the colorado software was installed?  Colorado, for a time, released a free upgrade to a 95 version of their software because, in my opinion, the Windows 3.1 backup software crashed so much.  (Fairly recently I found this to be the case).

The solution in this case (assuming you have upgraded from 3.1 to 95) is to contact Colorado (HP I believe now owns the software) and find out if it's still possible to get the upgrade or if you have to buy a retail version of the new software.
