Win95C: USBSUPP.EXE installation on P3 machine causes VMM32.VXD error, unbootable

Post by xyz »

Whenever I try to install USBSUPP.EXE for USB Support on my Pentium 3/Intel 440BX based Toshiba Tecra 8100 I end up with a VMM32.VXD error during boot, telling me its missing or corrupted and I have to reinstall Windows. And to press a key to turn off the computer.
I tried to backup and later on overwrite the VMM32.VXD file with the old version before I ran USBSUPP.EXE, but this didn't help either.
The notebook is suited with 512MB of RAM in case that matters.

Anyone faced a similar issue and has a solution to this?

Vmm32.vxd is "compiled" on each PC with all the other unique VxDs installed on that installation so backup and overwrite won't work.

As a workaround, have you tried the unofficial extended USB supplement?
