Hi Joe,

This problem is not uncommon during upgrades, especially when there may be some network components and protocols involved. Try this, it should help you.

This problem can occur if an upgrade to Windows 95 or Windows 98 detected the Banyan VINES network client but the Banyan VINES network client was not installed. This is may be caused by a previous installation of the Banyan VINES network client that left the following information in the Protocol.ini file:
 
   [BAN$VINES]
   DriverName=ndisban$
 
   [NDISBAN$]
   DriverName=NDISBAN$
 
Setup uses the Protocol.ini file to determine which 16-bit clients to install during an upgrade. When the preceding sections exist in the Protocol.ini file Setup automatically installs the Banyan VINES network client.
 
To resolve this, use the following steps:
 
1. Use the System Configuration utility (Msconfig.exe) to disable the "Device=c:\windows\vvinesd.386" line in the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file if it exists.
 
2. Restart your computer. If you receive the error message again, continue to step 3.
 
3. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network.
 
4. If any of the following network components are present, remove them:
 
    - Banyan DOS/Windows 3.1 Client
    - Banyan VINES ethernet Protocol
    - Banyan VINES token ring Protocol

To do so, click a component, and then click Remove. Repeat this until all of these components are removed.
 
5. Click OK, and then click Yes. If you receive the error message again, continue to step 6.

NOTE: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system.For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it.
 
6. Use Registry Editor to delete the vvinesd value under the following registry key and then restart your computer:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\

If you need to gain access to resources on a Banyan network, you
should reinstall the Banyan client. To install the 16-bit client, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: Q123877 How to Set Up Banyan VINES in Windows 98
 
There is a 32-bit Banyan client, but Microsoft does not provide support for this client.

If there are any questions, please ask!
