Workstation Service will not start


J

Jim Florence

Hi,

I'm having problems getting the windows workstation service to start.

I get 3 errors in the log

1) Service Control manager , Event ID 7023

The Workstation Service Terminated with the following error
The specified module could not be found

2)Service Control manager , Event ID 7001

The computer browser failing because it can't see the workstation service

3)Service Control manager , Event ID 7001

The Messenger Service failing to start because it can't see the workstation
service

This is a clean install of XP pro from a Microsoft select CD (including SP1)
on to a brand new Dell 4600

I've trailed the net looking for answers but come up with nothing. Closest I
came was http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q197157,
close but no cigar

Any help gratefully received

Regards

Jim Florence

Does this file exist? \windows\system32\wkssvc.dll?

I occasionally hear of services getting up and walking off (it's usually the
Server service), but I have no idea why or how it could even happen.

Do the properties on your network connection show the "Client For Microsoft
Networks" installed? You might try reinstalling it there.

You also might try running "sfc /scannow" and see if it notices the missing
file.

Ken,

I'm a bit confused as this file is not on any of the machines that I have
working on the same network.

I will try installing The Client again and let you know what happens

Ken,

Well to heck with confused it worked and your a star. I ended up copying the
file off a laptop running XP Home, not ideal but it's all all up and
working. The enigma is why it's working on my other Pro machine without the
dll!!!!!

Many thanks again for your help

Regards

Jim

I'd be pretty surprised if it really wasn't there on the working machines.
Check the spelling and make sure you look in the correct directory if you
have XP installed somewhere else. Or you can use the %windir% variable.


C:>dir %windir%\system32\wkssvc.dll
Volume in drive C has no label.

Directory of C:\WINDOWS\system32

10/21/2003 04:06 PM 119,808 wkssvc.dll
1 File(s) 119,808 bytes
0 Dir(s) 8,558,628,864 bytes free
