Hi,

  I found this from a previous post and it seemed to have fixed the problem for at least two people.  See if it solves yours:

Under DOS :

extract from the windows 98 cab files these files :

vmm32.vxd
Configmg.vxd

(eg. extract /a win98_22.cab vmm32.vxd)

and copy them into
C:\<Your windows Directory>\System        
             and
C:\<Your windows Directory>\System\VMM32

if this happends after that then try to do a ScanDisk & Defrag
and Also put a Thorough ScanDisk to Check For Bad Clusters in
your Hdd.

if you haven't any HDD Problems then the last choise is to Go To:
Device Manager -> Perfomance -> Virtual Memory

Then Click On "Let me specify my own virtual memory settings"
Check <Minimum> to 0 and <Maximum> to the meximum value it can
get. Then Choose Let Windows Manage My Virtual Memory Settings
and do A ShutDown..

dankh,
I have supplied a suggestion, submitted in the form of a comment, to the questioner for him/her to review.
I feel that when one proposes an "answer" to a problem, it should be the final SOLUTION, rather than something "pulled out of a hat".

Ralph,

    If you can give a definite answer to any question, please feel free to.  In fact, given all the untold variables that we don't know of, how can you give a final solution with most of the questions on here??  Are you psychic?

Vmm.vxd is all of the vxd's combined that are loaded on the file when needed. Replacing the file from the cd may work but you will not have any vxd's loaded from any other programs. Have you tried it in safe mode. What is your path set to? type in path at the command line. Is it long? hmmm.. bad error check to make sure that windows\system is in your path and check this folder to see if the file in there.

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IOSUBSYS if so copy the file to your system folder

also search ms web site
http://support.microsoft.com for the error message

good luck

dankh,
I try to give answers when I know the problem is solved.
Being psychic is not a requirement for resolving computer problems.

I_Need_Help,
Those system files are created at installation time.  Windows builds certain files, depending on many conditions when setup runs.
Have you tried the troubleshooter I suggested?
Regards,
Ralph

Do you have a UMAX scanner? If so , go to www.umax.com for the VMM32.vxd fix. Umax scanners cause missing VMM32.vxd errors

Go to help in the start menu-then to troubleshooting-then to start/shutdown problems and try 98s troubleshooting program.  It can't hurt.
