Cannot start the windows internet name service (WINS) service on local computer.
Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.
This is the error im getting when I attempt to start the WINS service. Therefore there is no WINS server in my network.
I open wins under Administratve Tools and the server has a red cross indicating its not working. I try to restore the database by browsing to find the wins database file in c:\windows\system32\wins and find the wins mbd database file which i assumed is what its looking for. I point it to that and the error comes up saying:
"Wins encountered an error while processing the command"
I really want to get this going. What is the best way to get it up and running - prob just a fresh wins server? and how do i go about this?
