Feb 24, Messages: I'm trying to add Client for Microsoft Networks on Windows XP Professional to allow sharing files between computers and get a message saying "unable to find a driver for this device".
I can't find drivers anywhere. Any idea how to proceed? Help very much appreciated! Feb 22, Messages: Maybe this guide will help you out. If it does or doesn't, please post back.
Zbrakkovich , Feb 25, May 15, Messages: Do you have the windows xp pro install disk? Yes, I have the original disk but can't find the driver. It does not seem to give you the option to add this driver and it does not let you re-install after the many upgrades I tried the method suggested by Zbrakkovich and that is when I get the message above. I'm sorry that I didn't ask this earlier as I do not use and have not used Client for Microsoft Networks before.
The only thing I see in installation and configuration instructions that concerns a driver is the driver for the network card being used. Right, as it says in the article you quoted, you are supposed to just select the "add" client and it should update the status.
Instead, I get the "unable to find a driver for this device" message and the typical "alternate source" message to direct to where the driver is located. Microsoft website soes not provide any ghelp either.
I am trying to share files between home computers and this PC does not let other PC's see files on it even though sharing is selected. Per the trouble shooting hints in Windows, the "Client for Microsoft Networks" is supposed to be enabled to accomplish this.
Maybe you should download the driver for your network card and put it somewhere you remember and the next time it prompts you for a driver, feed it the network card's driver. If you don't know where to go to download it, just tell me the network card that you have, and I'll try to find it for you. If you don't know how to look up your network card's information: In the Computer Management window on the left-hand side, select "Device Manager".
Then, on the right-hand side expand the option for "Network adapters" and post what is listed there. Also, if you notice a small, yellow triangle containing an exclamation point displayed on any of the icons in the Device Manager, your computer is most likely having some sort of problem with that component and you will want to get that checked out.
I don't think this problem pertains directly to a driver for the network card since the PC works fine on it's own going through the router to the cable modem.
I can see this PC from other PC's and can "ping" it but it does not let you access the files and you get a "not available" message. It also does not recongnize other PC's that are connected to the router but again, I can "ping" them and they show up so the hardware seems OK, both ways.
I checked the drivers in the profile per your hint and everything is working correctly. This PC used to be hooked up to a server where I worked so it apparently did not use Client fo Microsoft Network there but now here at home I believe I need this finction.
Well, it's just an option I thought you might want to explore. All of us are familiar with how many programs, Windows not excluded, can miss obvious data and prompt you for it. Since you said "other PC's" I assume that means you have other windows machines at home? Have you tried running a network setup wizard first and then trying to run Client? Yes, I have run the wizard on all the PC's nmany times and the funny thing is that I don't get any warning messages about settings or anything else on this one problem PC.
I have two more PC's and they share files well but this PC, really the main PC of the house, does not talk to the rest. So I'm still at a loss of what to do next. Apr 22, Messages: It says 'Cannot Add the requested component. The system cannot find the file specified'. The network card driver was giving trouble so i uninstalled all the components from the Local Area Connection Properties box.
Then installed all the drivers of the card and the card is showing ok now. But when i trie to install the Client for Microsoft Network it gave the following error and did not install the Client 'Cannot Add the requested component. I think some files related to Client for Microft Network may be deleted. I tried to find that but cannot find the file. May be some related files are deleted accidentally. I will copy those files from other XP computer. But please write to me all those files related to Client for Microsft Network and in which Folders.

Im using Remote Desktop Connection Microsoft to manage the server and this works flawless. Is there a nother client i can use or what should i do??? Thanks from a norwegian dud with poor english. If it isn't, then you should first try to reinstall there should have been a problem when XP installed the first time. You shouldn't connect physically your computer to networks local or internet before setup is complete, a virus can interrupt the setup process.
