    Event id: 2002 Source: EapHOST Eap method DLL path name failed.

    Hi there forum. Not sure if I'm posting in the right spot, so please correct me if I'm wrong. I am constantly getting this Event ID: 2002 errors in my Application event logs. The General Description is as follows: Skipping: Eap method DLL path name validation failed. Error: typeId=18, authorId=8086, vendorId=0, ventdorType=0.

    I have looked around Google and other forums and most say that you can delete this key and it will stop the logging of the errors. I have done so, but I want to make sure there isn't a more appropriate fix for this? I haven't seen any negative effects from deleting the key.

    I see this on both Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit systems I build.

    Thank you in advance for your help and support. :)

    What key did you delete? It sounds to me like you just deleted the key that creates the log file, which wouldn't fix the issue. I wish I could tell you how to fix it cause I am search for the fix myself. What I can tell you is that the problem has to do with authentication to WPA2 networks. Some say they can't connect at all but for my user it takes far longer then normal to connect to our network.

    Cisco LEAP/PEAP/EAP-Fast removal leaves bad key in registry

    I found this problem to result whenever I've uninstalled the Cisco LEAP, Cisco PEAP Module, & Cisco EAP-FAST modules via the add/remove Programs & Features tool. In general, these modules are not needed unless you are connecting to a corporate gateway and/or VPN server using proprietary Cisco authentication methods.

    Unfortunately, the Cisco uninstallers don't do a clean job and leave the following orphan key which is the cause of the problem:


    Removing this key caused the error messages to cease for me, and I've seen no negative effects to removing. As always, export this key prior to removing it just in case.
