 Fatal Exception OE 0028:00000017 Post a Reply  
From: Ken on 11/25/2002
I went to play a game I have not played for a while and this is the error I get . When I first tried to play the game I had to re-install it which was wierd because I never did anything to get rid of it, and I got this Fatal exception OE : 0028:C18884EE in VXD Riptide(03) + 000024EE then I un-installed the game , re-installed it and now I get the 0028:00000017 error . I have Windows 98 . I know that a while back my Mcafee Virus shield told me I had A virus so the file was deleted , then my computer was stuck on the windows screen at start up and never went any further so I ran my recovery discs and was up and running again . How do I get rid of these errors ?

Thanks in advance .

I've booted 98se twice in a row now without this fatal exception, but I was getting one with 06 and 0028:00000017 yesterday. I did recently install Directx 9, so maybe that's my problem? I also had a mailer (The Bat!) that for a while wouldn't run beyond the splash screen, now suddenly it's running part of the time, without having downgraded back to dx8.1.

i have the same exception when i run Dxdiag"it asks if i want to bypass the "accessing system information" part of the test.
if i chose no then the blue screen appears with the 0028:00000017
I built a new computor with a matsonic MS9337C motherboard
and tryed to install without success a pinnical tv /video capture board.
Running the pinnical software also causes the same exception
Strange part is if i disable the onboard audio"AC97 type".the Dxdiag program runs thru without error.i cant test this
setting with the tv board as it wont run without seeing a sound
Ive tryed moving the int's around and port#'s for the AC97 device
without success.
and I have tryed reinstaling the direct 8 with and without a format and fresh OS install.
Is there some kind of imcompatabilty issue with direct8 and win 98?.
and does anyone know if this exception "0028:00000017" is caused by hardware issues "port asignments interupts etc.
or is a software module loading in ram problem?
I was thinking of installing directx 9 but after reading the scarry stories about Directx9 at the microsoft directx forom.
ive decided ill stay with directx8.

The new version of directx may be your problem. Some older computers do not like the newer versions. There is a program called directx buster to help delete out directx and get an older version. I know this does not help with game playing but it may be the cause of your blue screen

The OE 0028:00000017 error message is associated with DirectX.

I try to avoid doing an 'over-install' as it causes a lot of problems. Typically, you can get registry problems with programs, driver issues, and my favorite, conflicting dll versions. Oh yes, there is nothing like a conflicting dll file version to make your blue screen shine brighter.


I guess what I am saying is if you can backup all your files, fdisk, reformat, reinstall windows, you will avoid many future blue screens.

However, if this is not an option for you, I would consider reinstalling DirectX 8.1. This should re-link everying for you and avoid some of the blue screens.

Good luck.
