Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
I am trying to rebuild an old 486 PC to run Win 95. Have carried out installation, but, on running 'Windows for the First Time' the system 'hangs' at the final stage of looking for hardware, and I get the following message:-
0E exception occurred at 0028:C00090D0 in VxD Called from 0028:C10317F6 in VxD. Press any key to attempt to continue; Press Ctrl Alt Del to restart. Can anyone assist with the problem here please
Pretty sure there is no problem with that - 48mb
Prior to the rebuild were you having problems with the system?
Do you have or did you have Norton Antivirus installed before the re installation? If yes then follow these steps..
After you install Windows, you may receive the following error message when Windows starts:
A Fatal Exception 0E has occurred at 0028:XXXXXXXX in VXD SYMEvent(02)+XXXXXXXX.
This behavior can occur if an older version of a Symantec program (such as Norton AntiVirus) is installed.
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it.
To resolve this issue, disable the Symantec Symevnt.386 file. To do so, follow these steps:
Use Registry Editor to delete the following registry key, if it exists:
Click Start, click Run, type sysedit, and then click OK.
On the Window menu, click System.ini.
On the Search menu, click Find.
In the Find box, type symevnt.386, and then press ENTER.
Place a semicolon (;) at the beginning of the line that contains "symevnt.386."
On the File menu, click Save, and then click Exit on the File menu.
Restart your computer.
After Setup has finished successfully, reinstall the Symantec program. If the problem continues to occur, contact Symantec for additional information.
