After my previous post on the subject, I started thinking (happens once in a while):
If all you need to do is copy/create the files, create some “informative” registry keys
and then simply restart the service…then the service was looking for the “informative” keys
and the DLL all along.
In other words since Windows 2003 can use this feature, it has actually been there yet not
implemented. So I discussed this with T (shortly…he never has time for me… 😉 ) and he
claimed that there might be a potential change to the DHCP service during the installation
process (MSI file).
I ran FILEMON and REGMON and I could not find any traces of a change to files or registry keys
that affect the DHCP service…hmm.
