Hello SebA, I am not familiar with the program you are trying to run but I believe it is a software issue since you do not experience it in Windows* 8.
I may suggest instead other means for troubleshooting, such as:
- Test the system in safe mode.
- How to perform a clean boot in Windows
- Perform a clean startup to determine whether background programs are interfering with your game or program
- Troubleshooting NTVDM and WOW Startup Errors
Furthermore, I would like to ask: is this a clean Windows* installation or a restored image?
I hope this helps.
We appear to be getting the same issue. Unfortunately nothing Joe suggested helped.
The issue does appear to have a direct relationship with the CPU type/family.
Desperately seeking a solution!
…if you install a graphic card in the computer, the problem doesn't appear !
Could this is be a driver issue? Or does the issue happen with different Intel® HD Graphics driver versions or even with Microsoft*’s inbox driver?
You may also try using the options from the Compatibility tab in the Properties window or “Run as administrator”
I've got the same problem. 5 to 10 seconds for ntvdm to start up. I5-processor 4th generation. No problem on other pc's with other processors.
Searching for a solution...
Did you try contacting Microsoft* about this? Perhaps they know something we don’t.
No solutions seem to appear with our tests...
I've tried yesterday with an Asus Q87T motherboard eqquipped with a i3 4340 in a "all in one" and the problem does occur, brand new PC, clean install from scratch...
Found a disussion on Microsoft technet for the same issue : ntvdm slow startup
I installed a graphics card as SebA suggested and the problem doesn't occur anymore. A solution, but an expensive one ...
That solution is not only expensive, but it is not always possible, we heve that problem with notebook and NUC as well...
Our problem is the machines are "All in ones", so like SebA this isn't a solution.
Interesting that the problem appears to be related to the graphics though.
I have opened a case with Microsoft as Joe suggested.
I'm seeing exactly the same problem with brand new DELL Latitude E6540, Win7/32bit, i5-4300M laptop.
Any information of solutions/workarounds highly appreciated.
First post here, I've been wrestling with this issue on and off for the last couple of weeks. Can't tell you how happy I am to finally find people with the same issue.
We have two desktops with i5-4670K and Intel HD Graphics 4600 that are having this issue. There are at least 6 other machines here on the same Win 7 32-bit OS that ntvdm runs fine on. Just these two are the problems.
Thanks for the info so far guys, hope a fix is released for this.
Update - Microsoft have investigated but not solved this yet. They have some log files they are interrogating now.
Joe_intel - Microsoft have requested that I acquire a contact at Intel so they can speak to directly regarding this problem. Can you please contact me directly so we can set this up?
I have sent you a PM.
Just to update anyone finding/following this. Intel have reproduced the error and are investigating.
