It says after it shows the windows 98 screen:
"A device has been specified more than once in the system.ini file, or a device specified in system.ini conflicts with a device which is being loaded by MS-DOS device driver or application or a deviceloaded from the registry file. Remove the duplicate entry from the system.ini file, and then restart windows"
Duplicated device: VCD
Press a key to continue

That is exactly what it says. I am running a windows 98SE, 128MB of ram, 20 GB HDD, Pentium 3
VCD online meant 3 things:
Value change dump(IEEE 1364 verilog)
Voice command device
Video compact disk

I have done a windows98 Repair install
please help

can you boot into windows?

if so do start > run > sysedit

this will bring up the system configuration editor...

it will have something like 4 windows inside of it...

click on the system.ini window and look for the vcd devices...

put REM infront of that device with a space....then click file, and then save... then reboot....

this wont uninistall the device...but it will render it inoperable....if this causes an issue...just reverse this process and put the REM infront of the other vcd instance
