SP Install: Make sure cryptography service is running....
Posted on 2005-04-02
When I boot this Windows 2000 machine into normal mode it crashes with a "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" win32k.sys BSOD associated with the 3Com 905C ethernet card. I disable the card and everything works. To fix this error I was planning to install SP4. The machine currently doesn't have any service packs. I've copied the Network Install of SP4 onto the machine and when I try to run it I recieve "Setup could not verify the integrety of update.inf. Make sure the cryptography service is running on this computer." So I go to Services and presto, no Cryptography! The service is not in the list so I can't start/stop it.
