Hi,

For some months now I get 2 messages when I login that the dnssd.dll file is missing and that Base Station Airport isn't working - see attachments. A while back I tried to restore, with no effect.

Can you plse tell me exactly how to go about getting this file back, and if anything else, how to sort it out.

Thank you!

Uninstall Airport then download and install the latest available. Make sure you get the right 32 or 64 bit version.

I only realized when I went looking for the program to uninstall it that Airport Base Station is Apple - as this laptop is Windows I wouldn't/couldn't have installed it, but how to get rid of this message?

Can you advise regarding the dnssd.dll file, plse.

Thank you.

Let's see what starts when you boot your computer.

Download and run Startup List (does not need to be installed, just run it).
When done, click File then Save as and save Startuplist.txt to your Desktop or somewhere you can find it.
Start a reply here and paste the contents of [COLOR=Red][B]Startuplist.txt

Ok, I ran the startup list as you advised, but do I paste all the contents (it's long) here? - not sure where the color Red B part is. I attached the txt file but will still paste it all here if you prefer. Thanks

Under [System Run] it shows:

AirMac Base Station Agent = "C:\Program Files\AirMac\APAgent.exe"

I'm sure that is where the problem is coming from. Start msconfig from a Elevated Command Prompt.
Click on the Startup tab. Look for some variation of the above and uncheck it.
Reboot and see if the problem is gone.

Sorry, but I'm not sure what command to type in after I did the Elevated Command Prompt and in the black screen - to get to the Startup tab.

From the Elevated Command Prompt, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab. Look for some variation of the above and uncheck it.
Reboot and see if the problem is gone.

Note, you get to an Elevated Command Prompt by clicking Start, typing cmd then right clicking on cmd.exe at the top of the window and selecting Run as Administrator.
