JSI Tip 0513 - Unable to browse the network, error 1222?

If you receive the subject message and/or \\<ComputerName> the network is not started, it may be that you have a missing or incorrect entry in the registry, preventing Mpr.dll (Multiple Provider Router) from determining the network provider. Edit:


There should be an Order sub-key which contains a value name of ProviderOrder, a type REG_SZ, which should have a text string of LanmanWorkstation. If these are not present or different, add or change them.
