ntvdm.exe - DLL Initialization Failed.
Posted on 1998-05-20
When running DOS batch files or NET START and STOP commands on my NT4 Server (Service Pack 3), after a few minutes I get the following error message, the error message has an OK button, pressing the OK button removes the error message box but after a few more minutes have elapsed back it comes, and so on.
Title of error message box : ntvdm.exe - DLL Initialization Failed.
Main body of error message box : Initialization of dynamic link library c:\winnt\system32\kernel32.dll failed. The process is terminating abnormally.
The only way to stop the error message appearing until next time is to reboot the server. The reason I am using a NET command is that I am shutting down an Centura SQL V7.0 database prior to Arcserve V6.5 Build 620 backing it up.
