• Win95 shutdown log?

    From Darren Darko@1:218/700 to All on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 05:53:42
    I seem to remember that W95 had a shutdown log that I believe you had to enable in the registry if I remember correctly? I'm not 100% sure, it's been decades since I last used it. But I wrote some drivers for my new retro PC build on modern hardware and am having shutdown issues. I'm not getting any issues booting or using the OS, in fact, I've not had a single blue screen in that time. Everything works, including S3 AGP video and USB, it's just that whenever I go to shut down, I get a windows protection error. If I boot to safe mode and shut down in safe mode, I get no error.

    The "windows protection error" message is pretty generic, and doesn't give any info that I could use to help track it down. It's not a huge issue, it's just more of an annoyance than anything.

    Microsoft seem to have wiped all W95 documentation from their website, so figured I'd ask to see if anyone knows here.

    Thanks in advance
