When I try to install TCP/IP protocol on Win 95, it gives me the following error:
Fatal Exception 0E has occured at 0028:C004704F in VxD NDIS(01) + 00000B27. Called from 0028:C00472A4 in VxD NDIS(01) + 00000D7C.
Sometimes this will happen right after I install the protocol, others it won't happen until the computer is restarted. When this happens, the computer fails to boot into Windows and I must go in safe mode and remove TCP/IP. thanks for any input.
Sorry, I don't understand the question.
You mean you had an established good working network and after you switched to TCP/IP protocol you got that error message?
What was your previous good working protocol then? What's the network you're running?
Or you're just installing your network card and trying to chose TCP/IP as your default protocol?
How do you know that the TCP/IP caused the problem? Have you ever had a network card installed and working good on that computer?
By the way, there's some info on your problem:
Microsoft Site: Err Msg: A Fatal Exception 0E Has Occurred at 0028:C02A0...
Yes, I have a good, working established network with 3 other computers. The network works well between them. It has the Client for Microsoft Networks, Ethernet Adapter, IPX/SPX, and NetBUI adapter installed. However, I need to install a TCP/IP protocol to access the T1 line for internet access. When I try to install the protocol (not the NIC), that error shows up, and that error only occurs when TCP/IP is installed (or attempted to be). That fatal exception really doesn't have anything to do with my problem.
My problem is a network problem, as it only happens when TCP/IP is installed, and NDIS is a networking file...
Is the Win95 machine the only one having problem? Are other computers networked OK via TCP/IP?
If the workgroup, computer name, binderies, shares, IP Addresses, Subnet Mask, other properties look OK,
check from Safe Mode for conflicting or old non-existing network adapters in Device Manager.
You don't need to keep protocols that are not in use (IPX/SPX, NetBUI).
If everything looked good but the problem remained, I would try just the fastest and simplest solution:
Reinstall the network card and the network with TCP/IP only on that troublesome Win95 machine:
delete network, shut the system down, pull the network card out, restart in Safe Mode, ensure that nothing from network adapters left. Reinstall the network card. Windows will install automatically the Client for Microsoft Networks and protocols. Set TCP/IP as default again.
