When you attempt to share a file on Windows XP, you receive:
Error: Server service not started
When you attempt to start the server service (Lanmanserver), it fails to start and you receive:
Error 126: The specified module cannot be found.
This behavior will occur if the Srvsvc.dll library is missing or corrupted.
To fix this problem:
1. Holding the SHIFT down to prevent installation, insert the Windows XP CD in your CD-ROM drive.
2. Open a CMD.EXE window.
3. Type the following command and press Enter:
expand <CD-ROM:>\i386\srvsvc.dl_ %systemroot%\system32\srvsvc.dllWhere <CD-ROM:> is the drive letter of your CD-ROM drive.
4. Shutdown and restart Windows XP.
