    reinstalling tcp/ip print monitor

    Hi
    I recently had a problem on a machine where the print spooler was corrupted. Ended up using cleanspl to clean out the spooler. Only thing is that I removed the TCP/IP print monitor (without realising the cosequences!) Now when I go to add a printer as a local printer on a TCP/IP port I can't, the Standard TCP/IP port isn't even an option. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to reinstall this, without having to rebuild the machine.

    Hopefully this procedure will restore it for you:

    Missing Standard TCP/IP Port - Mombu the Microsoft Forum
    If you ran cleanspl.exe and said delete the Standard port monitor, that
    would explain this. Here are the steps to get it back. This requires
    editing the registry or importing the key from another machine.


    the three system files you need should still exist in \windows\system32 (
    tcpmon.dll, tcpmib.dll, and tcpmonui.dll ) you can edit your registry entry
    and add the monitor back. If the files do not exist copy them from another
    installation or expand them from the installation CD.

    If you have any Win2k or greater system handy you can export the Standard
    TCP/IP Port key and import to the other machine. Even if you do not
    export this key if you can look at this key for guidance when adding back
    the entry it is helpful.

    stop and start spooler
