.\iosubsys sub directory is corrupt (win98se)

September 14, 2018 at 13:23:28
Specs: Win98 se
Having issues on my older CNC machine.
Trying to resurrect it and keep having issues.

I cannot figure out how to reformat a new hard drive with all the old software so everything communicates correctly between the controller and robot.

I have a boot disk.
I have all the original software and drivers on another hard drive.

After 2.5 days of trying to configure it I seem like I am no further than when I started other than a bunch of software sitting on a hard drive not even coming close to communicating with the robot.

So...I am back to trying to bring my old hard drive back to life long enough to clone the drive once I get it running. If I can.

Current issue is .\iosubsys sub directory is corrupt.

Can I just copy something from another win98 hard drive and paste into this one?

Please HELP!!!!!

Thank you!

"Current issue is .\iosubsys sub directory is corrupt"

Please post the complete error message. Something like, "While initializing device IOS: Error: An I/O subsystem driver failed to load. Either a file in the .\iosubsys subdirectory is corrupt, or the system is low on memory"?

.\iosubsys sub directory is corrupt or system is low on memory.

Had an issue and my operator hard shut off the machine. 6 or 7 times!!!!

When scandisk was done there was a bad sector.

The system folder looks suspicisially empty. In the system folder on the new HD I tried to load all the old software one there is considerably more folders and files. Now I know this doesn't necessarily mean anything but figured I would mention it.

The first error was the system/VMM32/IFSMGR.VXD folder was missing but the file IFSMGR was in the system folder. IT is in the folder on the new HD.

I copied the VMM32 folder from the new HD to the old HD and it did not have the same error.

Thank you!
