Everytime I logon at our SBS server I got a promt says: netsh.exe unable to locate component - this application has failed to start because  framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I've tryed to download a new component file at and tryed to put it in %systemroot%\system32\wbem - but in that libary there is already a framedyn.dll file, and I can't replace that file. I've tryed to delte that framedyn.dll file there already is with the program "Dr. Delete" but after reboot the framedyn.dll file i back.

I've also tryed to follow this guide but here I also need to replace the framedyn.dll in %systemroot%\system32\wbem and still, the system wont let me do so.

OS: MS SBS 2003 R2

How to solve this problem?

    Hmm, have you the correct path variables?

    Open a command prompt and type 'path' and paste your output here please?
