IIS and MMC Snap IN Issues
Posted on 2007-04-03
Hey all, this is a very strange and convoluted issue here that I am dealing with. I am working on a Dell Inspiron 9400 with WinXP SP2 installed on the machine. When I went in to install IIS I get an error saying that "Setup cannot copy the file staxmen.dll"
I have read a lot of the posts on here and also on google. I tried using esentutl /p %windir%\security\database\secedit.sdb. However this did not work. I found a solution through Microsoft, having me use the above command and then to re-create the local Group Policy file. It was while doing that, where I came across my next issue.
Microsoft directs me to use the security and configuration analysis snap in. When I try to use it I get the error snap in failed to initalize. The snap in does not have the microsoft vendor recognized, instead the icon is a generic folder.
I have tried several solutions to fix this issue. When I ran regsvr32 dmoxc.dll, it kept back with an error stating that the file was not found. I tried pulling from the Xp cd and still the error persists. I have also tried doing a scannow command but I keep getting the retry error on the cd. I have also tried a generic volume licensed cd with xp to see if I can pull from that. I get the same error. Any suggestions would be great as I am standing here scratching my head with a perplexed look on my face.
