Files replaced by unrecognized versions...
Posted on 2005-04-06
Here's the error msg that pops up on my W2000 server every day:
Windows File Protection
Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been
replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability,
Windows must restore the original versions of these files.
Insert your Windows 2000 Server CD now.
Retry - More Information - Cancel
more information yields ->
Possible reasons for this problem:
You have inserted the wrong CD. (i.e., a different Windows 2000 product CD
than the version installed)
The CD-ROM drive in your system is not functioning.
setup.exe - Entry point not found
The procedure entry point eapCreate could not be located in the dynamic link
Does this look like a problem with the CD (which seems to work fine in other machines), the drive, or KERNEL32.dll?
My W2000 Server CD is SP3, is it a bad idea to use recovery console to restore this file if system is SP4?
