I would like to know how to reinstall win95 from the hard drive cab files.
Problem: The VMM32.VXD file is missing, windows won't start. I don't have Windows 95 CD or Floppies to reinstall to the laptop. I had heard you could reinstall from the hard drive. Does anyone know how to do this? If so can you give step-by-step instructions? *I can boot into DOS with no problem*
(This is a floppy drive laptop, no CDROM.)
Thank you for your help and time, it is greatly appreciated!

The files need to be on the hard drive in the first place. If they're not then installation is a no-go area.
Typically the files live in C:\Windows\Options\Cabs and you run Setup from there.
