    16-bit Windows Subsystem Error message

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    Every time I startup my laptop running Windows 2000 Pro, I get this message:

    <font color=blue> SYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlVirtualDeviceDrivers . VDD. Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.</font color=blue> and it gives me the options of <font color=blue> Close </font color=blue> and <font color=blue> Ignore </font color=blue>.

    I do have Norton SystemWorks 2003 and I tried running all sorts of tests but it seems not to detect the invalid format thing?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks a Million...

    Re: 16-bit Windows Subsystem Error message

    MSKB article Virtual Device Driver Error Message in 16-Bit MS-DOS Subsystem suggests deleting the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlVi rtualDeviceDriversVDD value in the registry, then creating a blank new value (of type REG_MULTI_SZ).

    Sorry for the delay in finding and replying to you, but I did not get any notification that my post has gotten a reply.

    I guess they are working on fixing the Lounge.
