Network Neighborhood ICON gone!
mjduffy Sep-28-00 08:00 PM
I don't know how but I no longer have the network neighborhood available on my computer. It is as if the whole Microsoft Network software was deleted. I need to know how to re-install it. It is not listed in the add/remove programs/widows setup. I believe I need this to see my laptop, my laptop will not see my PC in Network neighborhood so I may still have work to do to get them working. Thanks in advance.

Plug in the network cable. No, see if the network is still there in the Control Panel, Network. Network install instructions are at http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/net2pc/intro.htm. Larry

The Network is still in control pannel, and both computers have the same protocols and clients installed. I am just unable to either "Find Computer" or pull up the "Entire Network" After I installed the drivers for the Linksys FENSK05 and the NIC in my PC. I got two file errors that are reffered to in the registry. (vredir.vxd and dfs.vxd) Then at windows boot I get the error of "Unable to load the dynamic link library: msnp32.dll
The system cannot find the file specified.
Some or all of the following feature is not available:
Microsoft Network

I have msnp32.dll, but don't know what system folder to put it in.

Hope this helps you. Thanks again for the help.

At this point I would uninstall and reinstall all network components. Are you being prompted to login into windows or the network? Larry

Thanks for the help. After discussing with several people the best solution has been to re-install windows 98 and start over with a clean system. I was afraid I'd have to do that.

That is not what I would recommend. I have seen many cases where customers have done that and created worse problems because they did not properly back-up critical data, etc. Good luck. Larry
