System\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers. VDD. Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
If I choose ignore the error message comes back up. IF I choose ignore again the message goes away but the application does not run. I did some research in to this and followed the instructions to the best of my ability. Here's what I did. I opened Regedit (the instructions told me to type in Regedit32 but that gave me the following error message "Can't find the file Regedit32 (or one of it's components)..."
When I opened Regedit I navigated to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers
and deleted the vdd value by choosing delete from the edit menu. The instructions told me to choose add value from the edit menu but I didn't have an option for add so I chose new which gave me the options for a new key, string value, binary value or dword value. The instructions I have say to choose add value, type VDD in the value name box then choose REG_MULTI_SZ for the data type. I am unable to follow the final instructions to create the new VDD file. I'm running Windows 2000 professional. What do I need to do to resolve thise issue?
