Hi Ive got WIndows NT4 sp6a
updated using MS update


Have put in a new UPS and cant load the software for it unless the SNMP Protocol is loaded.
Tried to install the service through control panel -> networks -> add then choose the SNMP
then dold to insert nt disk tried the original nt disk and the SP4 disk and  kept prompting for the nt setup disk.
I then tried ponting to the d:\i386 directory and still no luck???

Need to know whick disk or where to get correct files from to in stall SNMP

the files is on the i386 directory, i would say either your CD rom device is playing up, or the NT CD rom is damaged, try to copy the whole directory I386 from the CD to any location on your HD, then when adding the new services and prompted for the CD point to the I386 directory on your HD

the file is inside the I386 folder, it needs to be extracted as it looks like this snmtptrap.ex_  and it is 2.12 KB I can email to you if you like \, however you will need to use the extract utility to extract it and this shoud be done automatically by using the network services interface which should read he file from the I386 directory

so it seems you have another problem, i would start by re-applying SP6a then adding the snmp service then re-apply sp6a again
