DHCPMON.DLL file needed
I'm trying to run NETSH from a Windows 7 PC but getting the error message:
The following helper DLL cannot be loaded: DHCPMON.DLL.
The version I can get my hands on is from 2008 R2 is 64-bit and won't work for what I need it for (long story), and it doesn't seem to exist on 2008 or Win7. However, I believe it may exist on Vista? (and I don't have this installed anywhere). I'm hoping someone out there has a 32-bit version of this file and might be able to send it to me please???

I have a DHCPMONITOR.DLL in my Vista x32 system32 folder. Does this help?

I don't think so. Thanks anyway. It just seems strange you can run NETSH from Win7 and then it complains a file is missing...

Sorry mac_shinobi, I forgot to mention that I'd already tried the file from XP and it didn't work.
I have now sorted the problem
I eventually found the file in a very obsure and long path on the Win7 PC. (I had to do a "dir/s dhcpmon.dll" from the root of C: to find it... using the Win7 search function said no files found!?!) I had also downloaded and installed this: Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 with SP1
So I'm not sure if the file was already on the PC or if that installed it?
I copied it to c:\windows\system32 and NETSH now runs without error.
Many thanks to all those who took the time to check their PCs for me and/or replied. Cheers.
