Hi everyone. I've managed to get a fully functional Windows 95 install going (The original CD worked better than the copy I made), as in there's only 1 error during startup and most programs work fine, but there are 2 files missing that are causing the machine to crash. winspool.drv and spooler.vxd cause any program that need the printer to fail, and the printer part of the control panel comes up with an error.

So, could someone with Windows95B (Preferebly OEM) please send me winspool.drv and spooler.vxd to edward [dot] lang [at] gmail [dot] com?

Thanks, Edward :)

Thanks, anyway :)

I still have a backup PC running Win95 b oem. PC and system still work perfectly after 8 years.
If no one beats me to it I am happy to search for the files and email them to you.

Even though it mentions ME, you can still use the instructions the guy gives, to extract those files from your Win95 CD.
