"Fatal Exception" Error Suspending and Resuming with MSDLC32
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows 95
- Microsoft Windows 95 OEM Service Release, versions 1, 2, 2.1
If you are using the Microsoft 32-bit Data Link Control protocol (MSDLC32) and you suspend Windows 95 (using power management features), you may receive a "Fatal Exception 06" or "Fatal Exception 0E" error message when you resume Windows 95. The error message may be similar to the following message:
A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0028:<xxxxxxxx> in VxD VMM(06) + <xxxxxxxx>.
MSDLC32 does not reinitialize a certain variable correctly when the computer is suspended and resumed. This variable may contain random data, resulting in unpredictable behavior when you resume the computer.
