Run Time Error On Shut Down
Tezdread Sep-01-00 07:49 PM
Hi there, when I close down windows 98 I get this message on the screen. "Run Time Error R6009 Not Enough Space For Environment Press any Key To Continue" When I press a key it goes to the closing screen (it is now safe to turn off you computer) and then it closes. I have a PIII 500 with 128 ram and over 1.75gb of free space. Any help grately appriciated.

Not sure what to make of the first reply posted?

Larry it is the Second Edition.

I have also had another problem spring up, when I press ctrl + alt + del once, it restarts the computer instead of giving me the option to chose and close a specific program?

Things are going wrong all over the place, just had to run repair on IE 5.5 to get me back on this forum.... Dam that Bill G

The first thing to do is to make sure your Windows is up-to-date. Please go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and update your copy of Windows. One or more of these updates fixes shutdown problems. Larry

Just checking the update now!
I ran System File Checker and found the following files were changed or corrupt.
setupx.dll, mscat32.dll, mssign32.dll, crytui.dll, mssip32.dll, cryptnet.dll, softpub.dll, cryptext.dll, msosss.dll, I restored all these file from my win98 se disk but it hasn't made any difference.

Suggest doing a surface scan with scandisk and checking the drive for a virus. You aren't overclocking, are you? Overclocking can corrupt files. Larry

I've downloaded the latest updates from the windows site, done a full surface scan, set my CPU back to the original speed, (I had over clocked it from 500 to 620) I have also re-installed win98 SE. The re-install fixed the problem I had with the ctrl + alt + del but nothing else. When I shut down from safe mode I don't get the run time error, so I guess it must be something to do with software or drivers. Just don't know how I would locate the source.

Use msconfig (Start, Run...) to turn-off one thing at a time until you find the offender. I would start with the config.sys and autoexec.bat files. The program may be a real mode driver or old DOS program. Larry

Thanks Larry, after disabling the config.sys file the problem was gone. One further question reguarding this process. What exactly has it done? I was under the impression that windows needed to load the config.sys file? Here is the contents of my config.sys

DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE NOEMS
DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\DRVSPACE.SYS /MOVE
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\DISPLAY.SYS CON=(EGA,,1)
COUNTRY=044,850,C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\COUNTRY.SYS

Would you know what the offending line would be out of this? Is it worth editing this, or just as good to leave it disabled?

Unless you have a compressed drive you do not need drvspace (and the computer wouldnít boot all the way up). You probably do not need the display.sys and Iíll bet it was causing the problem (a tidbit, if confirmed, bobj3 can post in those other forums). Windows 98 does not need the rest of the lines. In fact, in general, Windows 98 does not need the config.sys or autoexec.bat files, and they can slow-down startups. Some of your devices/programs may need them, but I donít think the lines in your config.sys file are needed by anything. You can turn on each line separately by checking corresponding boxes in msconfig. Larry

When I disabled the display.sys line I got the following message.

"ERROR: COULD NOT INSTALL SERVICE VECTORS. PRESS ANY KEY TO CONTINUE."

I found that hymem.sys line disabled gets rid of the shut down problem but gives me this error message on start up.

"EMM386 NOT INSTALLED - XMS MANAGER NOT PRESENT
PRESS ANY KEY TO CONTINUE"

When I disabled the drvspace.sys line I got the same shut down peoblem, but when I disabled the,
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE NOEMS every thing was fine. I will keep the wholw of the config.sys disabled, from now on.

Thank you for your time and help, I have learned a lot, and saved some money the best of both worlds.
