I found a forum with a possible resolve for this click here
Several peeps had this problem and it was solved by DLing and re-installing the mmdevldr.vxd file
You get the file from a German site click here On the left hand side click the 'systemfile - center' link, then choose vxd files, then choose the letter M, then the zum download (in orange) option when the pages loads.
This appears to be a problem with windows 98. If you are running another OS ignore all of the above.
