Solutions: Error signals trouble in the Registry
Q. I am getting the following error message: "A fatal exception OE has occurred in VXD VMM." I get this message with most programs, but it most frequently occurs when running a program that requires a CD. After the error occurs, I can sometimes go right back into my program.
