During installation, I get the message Lanman Service is not running or absent. What does this mean?

The MKS Toolkit requires that the Lanman workstation and server services be running prior to installation. To start them:

  1. Select the Services application

    • On Windows NT, select Control Panel->Services
    • On Windows 2000, select Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services
    • On Windows XP, select Control Panel->Performance and Maintenance->Administrative Tools->Services

  2. From the list of services, double click the service named Server, verify that Startup Type is set to Automatic, and then click the Start button.

  3. Repeat this for the Workstation service.
