    WLan Service Will Not Start

    The wireless capabilities of my Vista laptop recently stopped working and
    after some investigation I found that the WLan service was not running.
    After several failed attempts at starting it, I went looking for more
    information and found the following int he Event log:

    "The WLAN AutoConfig service terminated with the following error:
    WLAN AutoConfig is not a valid Win32 application."

    I also got the following detail at the command line:

    C:\Windows\system32>sc query Wlansvc

    SERVICE_NAME: Wlansvc
    TYPE : 20 WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
    STATE : 1 STOPPED
    WIN32_EXIT_CODE : 193 (0xc1)
    SERVICE_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
    CHECKPOINT : 0x0
    WAIT_HINT : 0x0

    Anyone have any ideas what may be going on here? Are there additional logs
    I can look at? Perhaps some file permissions I can check? I attempted going
    back to a previous restore point but it looks like the earliest one available
    to me has this same problem.

    Suggestions?

    Cameron,

    I'm sorry you're experiencing trouble. Are you still having this problem?
    If so, does rebooting reset the process properly?

    Why no answers on original threads?

    I'm curious as to why you are answering all these queries with new posts
    instead of replying to the original post so that someone waiting for an
    answer to their query can easily find it by watching the thread that is
    generated from that post? This way of doing it makes it highly likely people
    will miss your answer and then post their original query again with added
    anger.

    regards
    Greg

    RE: WLan Service Will Not Start

    I have just hit the very same problem on Vista 64. I too have tried returning
    to a previously working restore point. Also tried rolling back the wireless
    card driver. Ran a disk check all last night. Nothing has cured this. Did
    you find a solution other than what's looking like a complete re-install?
