NTVDM.EXE is not running. Can't make use of 16 bit application
Posted on 2009-04-01
I recently moved to a Vista Ultimate 32 bit machine. I have most things working but my Programming Development is still having problems. I use Clarion 6, which is a 16 bit developement environment.
The program runs, but I can't compile anything.
It just freezes and eventually gives an error.
It can either be
"ntvdm.exe is not responding" or
"ntvdm.exe has stopped working"
I've done a bit of research and ntvdm is a program that allows 16 bit applications to run on a 32 bit machine. Obviously I am in need of this.
I'm looking at my process list in task manager and it is not there. It appears to not be running. I found the file in the System32 directory and tried to run it from there, but it made no difference. i.e. still didn't appear in process list and I still couldn't compile in the Clarion environment.
Could someone please help me sort this out.... or else I'm going to have to downgrade to an XP OS.
