VXD related fatal exceptions with 'new' TNT card
Posted on 2000-02-29
(Not sure this is a software or hardware fault, so it appears in two sections.)
Having just recently installed a Creative Labs Graphics Blaster RivaTNT 16Mb card and also a CL PCI64 sound card, with one particular piece of software running Direct3D graphics I always get one or more fatal exception screens when exiting.
They go along the lines of:
A fatal exception 0E has occured in module: blah VXD VMM (01) + ...
or VXD PCI MP(01)
I have a TMC TI5VG+ 1Mb MoBo running a VIA chipset. 32Mb SIMM Ram. AMD K6II 350MHz
Running DirectX7.0 and latest drivers from CL website.
Incidentally, should I or shouldn't I install a file VIAGART.VXD, designed for win95 according to TMC, when I'm running win98.
Apparently the Matrox video card doesn't like it but some do - I'm lacking in knowledge, please help.
