Missing Offline Files Tab
Recently reinstalled windows xp. Upon completion I noticed that on Folder Options the tab for offline files is missing. I tried the obvious and went into user accounts and unchecked fast switching. This did not correct the problem.

I really need to get this going since I travel with my laptop daily and want to synchronize offline files.

Please Please help!

Go to start>run and paste in this command. Press enter:

regsvr32 cscui.dll


This will register the file which provides the tab.

http://support.microsoft.com/default...B;EN-US;288135 is for win2k-server indeed.

In XP, three reasons can caused the missing Offline Files tab:

1. CSCUI.DLL has not been properly registered.
2. Some other binary that CSCUI depends on is not present or fails to load.
3. The target system is XP Home edition.
4. Disabled by domain policies.

If you are in a domain, please quit temporarily to test.

No. Terminal services are only used on server-based machine. The most possible reason is that the CSCUI.DLL dependency files fail to load.

Please let me know which way you selected to reinstall XP. Clean or In-Place? Are you using XPP?

Has the original problem been resolved and is your offline tab there now?

For the xmnt2002 not located message try this. Go to start>Run and type regedit. Press enter.
Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

In the right pane look for the MultiString Value named:
BootExecute

Double click on that and change it's data to:
autocheck autochk *
