JSI Tip 2197. Your Application Event log contains Event ID 12 after installing or upgrading to Windows 2000?

Your Application Event log contains:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: WINMGMT
Event Category: N/A
Event ID: 12
Failed to CoGetClassObject for provider "Microsoft|DSLDAPClassProvider|V1.0". Class not registered (0x80040154).
NOTE: This is a one time event.

Windows Setup and the WMI service have a timing issue. This has no impact on your system performance or stability. The event will not re-occur, and can safely be ignored.
