I backed up some files to floppy disks using DOS 6 - MSBACKUP.  I now can not restore those files onto my new computer which runs Window NT 4.0.  I copied all of the MSB*.* files from an old computer onto my new computer and added the following two lines to the 386h section of the system.ini file.

DEVICE=c:\winnt\system\VFINTD.386
DMABUFFERSIZE=32

However, I get the foloowing error "MWBACKUP caused a General Protection Fault in module MWBACKUP.EXE at 002D:005E.  Please help!!!!  I really, really, really need these backed up files.  What do I do?

Msbackup is not compatable with windows nt, It is not possible to use Msbackup with nt because nt does not support the use vxds or protected mode drivers such vfintd.386. Your only option is to restore these files on an msdos machine and use another way to transfer the files such a thru network or Ras service.
There is not a good way around this at all unless you make the machine a dual boot system and have dos and nt on it you can then boot to dos restore your files and run nt and access them.
One thing is for sure you will never in 1000 yrs get the old backup app to work under nt.  You have to find another way.

Unfortunately Wayneb answered my question.  I did not like the answer that I got because the solution he gave me is not an option for me.  Nevertheless, thanks to Wayneb.
