My Dell Dimension XPS B600r has W2KPro installed, and working very well.

One problem remains: it refuses to run its 16-bit MS-DOS Subsystem. When I attempt to
start DellDiagnostics (delldiag.exe), for example, the following message appears:
"C:DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\Desktop\SHORTC~1.PIF
SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers.VDD. Virtual Device Driver
format in the registry is invalid. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application."

Any help you can offer to resolve this problem would be very much appreciated.

Thanks PC-DISK1, my VDM now works.
However,DellDiag still gives me a problem. on starting I get a command window entitled :
Inactive DellDiag, and the window contains the following:
"Abnormal program termination: Memory protection fault.
CS : EIP = 01FFh:0000BB99h"
None of my books help. Assistance would be great.

Hiya

I have grabbed this off the newsgroups:

The answer was

have you tried to run 3dstudio without any sort of memory managers ?
just load mouse and video driver and run it...i had a similar problem when
i switched from normal RAM to EDO ram....but after getting rid of all
memory managers...i got it to work...good luck
Regards
