I have a client and the workstation will not let me view network neighborhoob properties. I tried to right click the Icon, I tried to go the Control Panel and open the Network neighborhood but the Icon is missing. Any suggestions.

Thanks,
Doug

Make sure your netcpl.cpl file is in the windows folder. If it is deleted / missing it will cause this exact problem.

You may need to re-copy it from the installation CD. If so, you will have to de-compress it using expand.

The easiest way to do it is just to copy the file from another workstation. Place it in the \windows folder and it should work fine.

Let me know if you need more help.

Correction, the file should be placed in the \windows\system folder!

Sorry!

First thing I would try is doing a search of your hard drive for netcpl.cpl. If you find it, double-click it and you'll be in network properties. If you don't find it or get some kind of error you can try going into Add/Remove Programs and try reinstalling the communications stuff.

That happened to me before on a Win 98 machine. This is for Windows 98, im not sure if it will work on Windows 95, or Windows 98 SE. The Netdi.dll or Netos.dll file might be corrupted. Extract it from the windows cab files and put in in the Windows/System directory.
