TCP/IP Printing

By f-1548911 ·
Hi,
I'm trying to add a TCP/IP printing port in Windows XP and getting an error: "error loading the TCP MIB library".

Did a search Ms Knowledge base article # Q261302.
Which tells me to rename/delete file Wsnmp32.dll.

The problem with XP is that everytime I rename/delete the file, it restores the file back in about 2 secs. I try disabling the system restore feature under system properties and rebooted the PC but no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you might try turning off any possible advanced networking features. Actually I would uninstall all networking protocols, drivers and related items. The file obviously is related somehow to SNMP functions which is simple network management protocol. Im not sure this is the true issue though. Anyway reload the tcp/ip stack and use only the necessary componets. You might also turn off the firewall in XP if you have it on. It can play some odd tricks when trying to network. What it sounds like is the network stack is still loaded but wsnmp.dll is not actually used at the time you are deleting it. As Im sure you know you cant delete a file that is in use. I would do a search for it and make sure where all the file is and rename all instances. If it needs to reload copy it from the XP CD so its fresh and should be free of corruption. If you used Fat32 instead of NTFS you could boot to DOS and try deleteing it that way. You may also want to verify that there isnt a virus causing problems.Thats all i got for now.

hope this helps

Jason

There are two locations:
Just delete the one in the %SystemRoot% folder. Nothe the one in the System32 folder.


Resolution
Rename or delete the Wsnmp32.dll file in the %SystemRoot% folder. This file is taking precedence over the Microsoft-supplied file in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder .

Just to add to the previous answer, Try also booting into safe mode and renaming/deleting the file there.
