Windows 95 stops loading with "Windows\system\VMM32\WRTdev0.VXD is missing" after pressing any key it then loads and works normally. Question :- Which applications or programmes are likely to use this VXD so that I can find it and reinstall ? I can't find it on the Windows C.D.

Problems Starting or Shutting Down Win95 (VXD Errors)
STEP 1.
If the device driver (referenced in the error) has a .vxd extension,
it is a driver designed for use with Windows 95 and is referenced in the registry.

Locate the value that references the missing device driver in the
registry, and then delete that registry value.
NOTE: ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST

STEP 2.
Disable the line referring to this device driver in the System.ini file.
To do this, follow these steps:
1.Edit the System.ini file using any text editor (such as Edit.com).
2.Locate the line that references the file in the error message.
3.Place a semicolon at the beginning of the line as in the example below:
4.Save and then close the System.ini file.
5.Restart the computer.

STEP 3.
Are the StaticVxD values in the registry incorrect?

If a specific device driver is not named in the error message, one of the StaticVxD values in the
registry is probably blank or contains only spaces. The StaticVxD values are located in the registry
keys below the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Current
ControlSet\Services\VxD
Use Registry Editor to locate and delete any StaticVxD value in the registry that contains invalid data,
is blank, or contains only spaces.

STEP 4.
Have you recently removed a program from your computer?
If you have recently removed a program or componet, reinstall the program or component, then run
the uninstall tool if one is available. If no uninstall tool is available for the program or component,
contact the manufacturer to obtain instructions on uninstalling.

Lemme know.
