W2K Professional

By daniel ·
A user is missing system files within Windows 2K Professional, and when attempting to reinstall system files from CD, gets message stating some files are missing to perform this action. However, it does not state which files.

What is the best wayto fix this issue without formatting hd and reinstalling Windows 2000? Is there a utility that will check for missing files and reinstall?

Thanks,
Dan

System File Checker tool - sfc.exe

The best bet is to do a repair installation (this is an installation during the standard Win2K installation process).

This process will reinstall any missing system files as well as reinstall any corrupted filed.

This process will not change the current administrator password (which must be known to successfully complete the process). Applications will not have to be reinstalled, but OS service packs will.

Hope this helps.
