nettcpip.inf might show as nettcpip (with extension hidden)

Secondly, try WinsockXPFix tool

It's a compressed file in the I386 folder in XP CD.

named "NETTCPIP.IN_". You need to use the expand command to output file name nettcpip.inf.

So basically if i am not able to install tcp/ip from c:\windows\inf
That should i give the path in have disk for cd rom drive so that i can install it form cd.
Coz whenever i just put the disk in the cd rom drive and give the location of cdrom drive it cannot find that file on the disk.
