How do I find out what files are needed by a specific Windows service?
Posted on 2003-10-23
I have a working XP Pro computer and a non-working XP Pro computer. The computer that is currently "broken" does not work because the service Plug and Play is not running and cannot be started. Initially, the file services.exe was missing and got restored by running sfc /scannow, but Windows still say that there is something missing in order to start the service.
Because of this problem, I would like to use my working XP computer to gather the filenames I require in order to find out which file or files are missing in the other computer.
Also, if you know of a way of extracting OS files from the cabs, let me know. Thanks!
P. S.: If I am being unclear, please let me know so I can clarify.
