When I click on Add/Remove Windows Components, I first get an error message:
sysocmgr.exe-Ordinal not found: The Ordinal 1118 could not be located in the dynamic link library WSOC32.dll​

When I click "OK" on that, I get another message:
setuplibrary iis.dll could not be loaded, or function OcEntry could not be found. Contact your system administrator. The specific error code is 0x7e​

When I click on that, I get a final error message:
The application could not be initialized​

I tried to expand iis.dll from my XP CD onto my Windows\system32\setup directory, but that did not help.

I also ran WinsockXPFix, and rebooted, but that did not help either.

I'm running XP Pro, with AVG FRee and Ashampoo firewall.


Here's the TSG SysInfo log:

Any help would be appreciated.

Open command prompt and type sfc /scannow you will need to place your xp disk in your cd/dvd drive.
NOTE:The disc must also be sp3 in order for this to work.

Insert your Windows XP CD in the drive.

Click Start > Run > type CMD

Click OK.

In the Command Prompt, type expand X:\i386\sysoc.in_ -r c:\windows\inf

(Where X:\ is your CD-ROM drive letter. Change accordingly)

Press Enter.

Actually, that command line should be:

expand X:\i386\sysoc.in_ -r c:\windows\inf\sysoc.inf

or you will just have an uncompressed file named "sysoc.in_" which is of no use to you.

Subsequent to posting my earlier message, I had tried all your suggestions, Elvandil, Phantom010 and Jason83, but no joy. In fact, I found all kinds of problems in my network connections. I tried to repair XP, but no luck there either--it stopped at another error.

So, I bit the bullet, backed up my system, and upgraded to Win 7---the XP registry and all the programs that I had collected (and never used) over the years had to be cleaned out.

So that's what I am in the middle of, and, cross my fingers and toes, it hasn't been too painful so far!

Thanks for your suggestions---but I think that just too much was messed up, and it was not helped by the fact that I'm not very conversant with the Network protocols.
