    .bat file error msg

    When I double click any .bat file, I get
    Cannot load VDM IPX/SPX support
    . Every reference I google refers to a) network protocols and/or Windows NT 4. Since these are local files, and I never had NT 4, I don't get it.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.

    This may help:

    Symptom:
    When you open a DOS shell or if you run some programs in the DOS shell, you will get an error: Cannot load VDM IPX/SPX support

    Causes:
    On Windows 2000 (maybe Windows XP and others), when you install CSNW and Novell's Netware client, it adds extra stuff to your autoexec.nt file. When you uninstall the client, it leaves a few turds around on your system (don't they all?) that could cause problems.

    Solution:
    Edit your %SystemRoot%\system32\autoexec.nt file and look for these lines:

    REM Install network redirector
    lh %SystemRoot%\system32\nw16
    lh %SystemRoot%\system32\vwipxspx

    When you find them, just REM the lines out or delete them entirely.

    I wasn't. Never have. Those lines were in my autoexec.nt file, anyway. F**ked if I know how they got there.
