Can't start "The Routing and Remote Access service"

  1. This is the error in the even log;en-us;840686&FR=1&PA=1&SD=HSCH
    and here seems to be a somewhat related solution off the MS site. It is NOT a fix though because it's talking about folders I don't have. Specifically I have no "%windir%\system32\ias\" folder. And I really doubt most people do as the fix is specifically for these systems.
    I have XP professional but on an AMD processor. Anyway, I have no such folder.

    I checked the service dependencies and they've all be been met. It doesn't require much as far as I can see.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Ok, I followed in the guide in the microsoft help thing even though it didn't seem to fully apply and it didn't really help.

    Same problem different error...
    It went from error 16389 (0x4005) to error 3 (0x3) .

    I don't know if I made it a little better or a lot worse...

    All I did was add that ias folder, extract those two files to it off the xp cd, and then register those two dll files which were already on the computer. I suppose I could go fishing through the registry to remove those entries and of course delete that folder... but so far nothing else has been effected. The computer generally does everything flawlessly but it won't load that service.

    Do you actually need that service?

    I need it for VPN... Don't worry about that though... I just need to get this working... not third party VPN software but XP's native VPN system... and for that I need "routing and remote access" to load.

    Try running a "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) from command prompt.
