I am trying to run sfc in Win XP Home. I have looked at and edited the 2 files fo40ext.inf and ims.inf to remove the "Professional" entries and it still wont work. I have tried the XP Home CD's of the following versions: 2002, SP1, SP1a, SP2. All of them tell me that I amusing the wrong CD. The system was installed with SP1. Could somebody assist with editing these files for me?

Last few lines of fp40ext.inf before any edits were made:

Can't see any reason why this won't work, except the Microsoft article clearly says replace "Professional" with "Home", not "Home Edition". Worth a try?

Well, going back to your original post, it would seem that only two changes need to be made to fp40exe.inf and none to imf.inf. Assuming that the original fp40 file is hidden under a different name, you should be able to run sfc /scanonce (runs on reboot) using the install CD.

Come back with the results.
