So yeah I just got my xp machine up and running and I decided to try and set up file and printer sharing however once I installed it in xp I accidently uninstalled it and now I can't seem to reinstall it. If someone could walk me through the steps on how to fix this I would really appreciate it
 


So after screwing around with a few things and like I said before accidently uninstalled microsoft file and printer sharing from the network apdater it seems I am missing the server service.

Do similarly for file and printer sharing.

Oh and why 2 threads?

Well because at first I thought it was a simple issue but then I noticed I was missing the Server service.


When attempting to install the Client for Microsoft Networks I get this warning
 
"Windows was unable to find any drivers for this device.
If you have a disk that contains the updated, driver or you wish to search in another location, click OK."
 
EDIT
After messing around with it for about a few hours I finally got it to work.
