WLan Service Will Not Start

C

#1
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

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?
