Windows 7: Network Service List does not turn on

14 Sep 2011   #11

windows-7 (64bit)
 
 

I am looking for
NlaSvc
(Network Location Awareness) and RpcSs (Remote Procedure Call)

I found nlasvc.dll.mui which is inside C:/Windows/SysWOW64/en-US and also
nlasvc.mof inside C:/Windows/SysWOW64/wbem. I couldn't find RpcSs.

These are not what I am looking for, are they? They should be .dll files, right?

However I did found nlasvc.dll and rpcss.dll inside the system32 directory. Should I apply tomchen's solution to these files?

Many thanks
Nothing. They just do not belong in there.

Right. Change them as a last resort.

For clarity of the File extensions:
nlasvc.dll.mui: MUI File Extension - Open .MUI files
nlasvc.mof:MOF File Extension - Open .MOF files

Yes.
If the Service still will not start there is the possibility that the .dll files need to be re-registered because of corruption, but you will un-register them first.

Open an Elevated CMD Prompt Then type in:
regsvr32 /u nlasvc.dll
regsvr32 /u rpcss.dll
The /u stands for un-register.

Then:
regsvr32 nlasvc.dll
regsvr32 rpcss.dll

If you see an error such as: nlasvc.dll / rpcss.dll was loaded, but the dllregistaryserver entry point was not found.

It means that not all .dll files contain information that needs to be entered into the registry.
If you see the above error, the .dll file does not need to registered in order to be used by the OS or application.
The error message is telling you “you tried to register a dll file but is does not contain any information that has to be in the registry”.

All you need to do is to close out the CMD prompt.

If still no go after all of this please run System File Checker at least three times.

goude,
I am beginning to enter into a grey area in trying to help you because of the Security, and Launch and Activition Permissions as my Edition of 7 is Home Premium, and it is limited in what it can do in those areas.

You do not specify what Edition you have, but if you are preforming tomchen's solution I would believe your Edition is higher than Home Premium.

OK now a different problem came up.

My Windows 7 Edition is Home Premium as well.

I tried to apply tomchen's solution to these services but it will not let me do that.
I tried to add the "Local Service" as I did with NSL but for NlaSvc and RpcSs the add option is greyed out.

I can confirm that my account has administrative privileges.
Here is what I do:Inside windows system32 directory, right-click on nlasvc service, then properties, security tab.In security tab under Group or usernames I can see SYSTEM, Administrators (Goude\Administrators), Users (Goude-PC/Users) and TrustedInstaller

Then I go to Edit in order to add the "local service" like I did with NSL(tomchen's solution)
but the add option together with the remove option are greyed out.

I googled that and I found this: https://lbis.kenyon.edu/helpline/net...esspermissions

In this link it says: If you notice that the permissions checkmarks for the user are greyed out, you must do the following to be able to change their permissions:
  • Highlight the desired username in the list in top half of window and click the Advanced tab.
  • Uncheck the box to left of Inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child object, which appears near bottom of window. Click OK.
  • Click the Copy button and then OK. This should change the greyed-out checkmarks to black so that you can change the permissions for that user.
My "Inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child object" box is already unchecked and is also greyed out.

Any more suggestions please?

My Apologies, but I am tapped out..

I have been trying to find the link for a third-party Group Policy editor in my chest O' marks that was offered by one of the members here, but I am not having any luck so far. All that GPEdit is, is a GUI front end to the Registry.

I do not know if this will be helpful until I can find that link, but if you would like to try and modify the registry manually this download will guide you on what the policy settings should be, and then you can modify them to your liking.
Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Group Policy Settings Reference for Windows and Windows Server

Do not forget to backup your registry!
