Services File on x64 Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2009-05-22
This is odd to me. We have a business application that requires an entry in the "Services" file found in the C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc.. Folder. I just do what they said, add the entry and it works fine on ALL servers that are 32bit\x86.
On our new 2003 x64 terminal server we are specifically getting an error that the entry is Not in this "services" file. I'm not attempting to troubleshoot the business application but rather trouble shoot this service file.
Is there a way to check that my entry is correct read?
I've also assume that the simple fact that this folder is "System32" and that this is a x64 bit server I would need to create these files somewhere else. So I've copied the service file into a created folder c:\windows\syswow64(whaterver it is)\driver\etc - No help. I've copied that file 2 directories higher - No help.
As you can see I'm shooting in the wind here.
