That is a special file, created during Windows installation. Every computer uses a different VMM32.VXD file, so you can't simply copy one from another system and expect it to work.

If you can't find that file by searching the system in DOS, you could wipe the drive and reinstall Windows again, or do a repair install, installing Windows on top of itself. That should force the creation of a new VMM32.VXD file, and that problem should be history.

If you DO find the file somewhere on the HDD through a DOS search, copy it into the Windows\System folder, then reboot the system.

Good luck; keep us posted.

Did you get the error immediately after installing Windows 98? Sometimes third party software can be responsible.

Is this happening during one of the reboots after the install?

If so, take the CD out of the drive.

"but the OS is working "

Can you explain what you mean by that??

VMM32 is a critical system file and Windows should not be "working" if it is missing
