Greetings All,

I just discovered that my install using the MSDE 2000 object fails if the user does not have the "Server" service started. On WinXP Pro, this means that they have to have "File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks" enabled via one of the network adapters.

So, how do I have the installer check to see if "File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks" is enabled (and the Server service is started) and if it isn't, how do I programmatically install it ?

Any ideas ?

Has anyone figured this one out yet? I need to programmatically enable file and print sharing during the install.
