I updated my Windows Vista about a year ago. And now, I cannot install the jEdit software. Every time I attempt to install it, I am facing a system error. Here's a photo with the problem concept. Anyone can help me? I am really in a big trouble!

The first prompt message box is stating:

WinZip Self Extractor [JEdit12a.exe]

Click 'Setup' to extract the files to a temporary directory and begin the J-Edit installation.

The second prompt message box is stating:

16 bit Windows Subsystem

SYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlVirtualDeviceDrivers. VDD.Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

From the error message it states the drive format in the registry is invalid. Since you upgraded your windows vista, the system specifications might have changed too, and therefore you will need to check the system specification of your operating as follows:

  • Go to My Computer and right click on it.
  • And then click on system properties.
  • In the window that will open check the system specifications.

After you have done that, you will need to search for the right version of the jEdit software that meets those requirements, and then download it and try installing and see if it will work.

Hi Keneth Summers,
 
Please find the below step by step instructions.
 
  • Press Windows+R and type regedit and hit enter
  • Go to  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > VirtualDeviceDrivers
  • Delete the value named VDD
  • Now, under Edit tab, create a new Multi-String value and name it as VDD.
 
Hope it helps.
