How to get IPX / SPX work in XP Tiny
I spent a few hours finding out, how to install nwlink ipx / spx netbios protocol into windows xp tiny rev. 2 and because I found nothing on google, maybe this tutorial will help someone... You will need the Windows XP installation CD, then make some folder on your harddrive, and copy these files from CD rom to it : netnwlnk.in_ nwlnkflt.sy_ nwlnkfwd.sy_ nwlnkipx.sy_ nwlnknb.sy_ nwlnkspx.sy_ nwprovau.dl_ wshisn.dl_ These files can be found in the I386 folder. Next step is to decompress them. From the location where are they stored, run this command : for %f in (*.??_) do expand %f -r If it is too difficult to use the command prompt and type hardly understandable commands for you, you can use WinRAR. Copy the two dlls and sys files to Windows\System32 folder. I am not sure whether all the sys files are necessary and you can try to skip some of them. Now, the final step : Show the properties of your LAN connection (right click on Local area network icon located in Network connections window). From General tab click Install... select Protocol and click Add... From the select network protocol choose Have disk... then browse for the netnwlnk.inf and continue installation. Yeah, now I can play bomberman on LAN !
