Solution To VPC2007/W95 NDIS Protection Error

  • 0

While setting up Windows 95 on Virtual PC 2007 I was getting the following error message “While initializing device NDIS: Windows protection error”

I reduced the RAM to 64MB and turned off Hardware Virtualization but the problem remained.

The solution was to start in Safe Mode and open the System Properties/Device Manager from the Control Panel and remove the network adapter.
