    I can't get the Computer Browser Service to start on Windows 2000 machine.

    "Error 1075: The dependancy service does not exist or has been marked for deletion."

    Does the Computer Browser Service have a dependancy that isn't started maybe? I have no idea what it might be.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks!

    I believe that the only dependency for the browser service is the workstation service, although the server service may also be needed. Any other problems or indications of trouble? Can you connect to other PCs/servers using the IP address or name?

    Ok, Workstation service is started, there is no Server service.

    (This is Windows 2000 Pro)

    All ip connectivity is good. I am trying to install Arcserve Manager and it requires the Computer Browser service.

    Rikku, If you go into Computer management and open the services, right-click on the Computer browser service and select properties, there is a dependencies tab. Try that to see if it provides you any help. Mine states that it does need both workstation and server service (I have w2k pro also). If you don't have the server service listed, that is your problem.

    Thanks Raw,

    I had never really noticed that Dependencies tab - neat! Ok, well I only have Computer Browser listed as a Dependency. And no, I don't have Server listed as a service.

    So, how do I get the Server service installed? Wonder where it went to begin with?

    I did check a couple other of my w2k workstations and they have the Server service.
