Error releasing the current IP address: The system cannot find the file specified.

Q: Error releasing the current IP address: The system cannot find the file specified.

hi guys!

been having trouble with my internet connection in the last few days. prior to these problems, my internet has been running fine.

upon a restart there was no connection. windows is configuring my connection settings and a shift to the wireless card was no help. upon a diagnostic check i was receiving the 'Error releasing the current IP address: The system cannot find the file specified.' message with zeroes in the IP address.

i left it overnight and today i restored the router to factory settings just in case. the wired ethernet connection on my housemate's computer is fine, as is any other laptop that is connecting wirelessly.

i thought it may have been a wireless card problem but using an adapter brings no change. however, when left (using obatain ip address settings automatically) i will eventually receive a connection, albeit when i load pages up they are drastically slow (dial up slow) or fail to load with a 'page load error'.

it may be helpful to note i also had a trojan recently but have run malwarebytes anti-malware and each time it returns two trojan.agents in the registry data which are there EVERYTIME i run the scan.

i am using microsoft windows xp. and a belkin wireless 54mbps desktop adapter which is 'working properly' apparently.

an ipconfig /all run brings up these results;

Preferred Solution: Error releasing the current IP address: The system cannot find the file specified.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a user that is using a laptop with an NT 4.0 OS. This user travels from office to office and connects to our network. Currently the admin password has changed and the users old IP address is still attached to the machine. Is there anyway to release the IP address? The user doesn't have admin rights to the local machine and I have tried removing the NIC card and replacing. I can sign into the machine with a local profile but I don't have rights either to release the IP. I am a local support person in the IT dept. Thanks
 

A:Releasing an IP address

Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /release that should release all ips on that machine.

I'm at wits end.
Here's the summary:
Cable internet through Comcast works fine on my laptop, but not on the desktop. The Motorola modem is plugged into my integrated ethernet card for the Nforce 570 slit A motherboard and XP SP1 OS.
I checked the status of the connection and it sends packets fine, but does not receive at all.
The IP address starts with 169. At the command prompt I released it and tried to renew but is says "socket not found."

Please help me. Ask if you need more info I have not thought to type.

Thanks in advance.

A:Can't Renew Ip Address Even After Releasing

Reboot your computer and see if that helps.Also, try using the inetwiz command.Also, make sure that you don't have any firewalls running, just to make sure you can get online.If all else fails, you may need to make sure that you have the ethernet drivers installed. If they are installed... reinstall them again, but 1st uninstall the ones that are installed.After you get things rolling ok, it would be very good on your computer to upgrade the SP1 to SP2.

My internet connection is connected via a wireless router. I have about 15 devices connected via this router, and at any given time there are maybe 3 devices up and running. 2 of these devices are only browsing the net and low level bandwith, while the 3rd is doing heavy downloading and online streaming etc, tying up the bandwidth. I do not want to completely block this user, just curious how could I temporarily release there IP address (from my PC, or from the router login page) from the network, long enough for the webpage I need to view to load, and then just allow the device to automatically refresh the connection?
 

A:Solved: Remotely Releasing an IP Address

You should discuss this with the other user, or buy a connection package with more bandwidth. You are asking us to teach you how to disconnect another user that we have no way of knowing you are authorized to disconnect.

I am trying to update my system with windows update, but it doesnt' work..

I have narrowed it down to BITS not starting.. When I open services and try to
start it manually, I get the error "Windows could not start the BITS service on LOCAL COMPUTER. Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified"

I have tried the Microsoft FixIt and the Fix Windows Update utility from TheWindowsClub.. From another post, I also noticed the folder at

is set to 'read only'.. I can uncheck that, but it stays as read only.. I'm
not sure if that has anything to do with it or not..

Is this fixable? I'd like to update!

This may be simple, or it may be very complex - are you ready for what could be a long thread?
If not, then a repair install is the way to go.

A little history on your problem would help us decide how complex this is likely to get.

Hello all,

I have been having a problem with my PC for the last ...uhh... couple of years where it will randomly, without warning, reboot itself. I cannot correlate any rhyme or reason for when it occurs, and sometimes it happens several times per day, and sometimes just once. The message in the event viewer that occurs just as the system reboots itself is "The MCSTRM service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified." - I googled this and found that it was connected to Rhapsody, which I promptly uninstalled. This alleviated the problem COMPLETELY for about a week and a half, until two days ago when it began all over again. I had not installed or uninstalled anything when the change occurred.

Hiya and welcome to TSG

You can just type it into Google, say WinDVD, and the website will appear, eg Corel.

If its a paid program, you should still have the emails. Or is it a shareware/freeware program?

Greetings all, tearing my hair out over this. I normally use google-fu to solve stuff but after a few hours I'm still stymied on this one.

My brother handed me this laptop that he had upgraded to Win10 (probably in the hopes it would magically fix longstanding problems he'd been having with it). It's x64, for the record.

I'm sure it's had malware infections in the past. I don't believe it currently does though--ran Malwarebytes and looked myself in msconfig and I don't see anything untoward.

But I think a previous malware infestation screwed up the BITS service to the point now where it will not start. I didn't notice this until I tried to run Windows update. No matter what I do I can't get it to install KB3081448 (well it won't even download it). Windows update fails with "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:

"Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081448) - Error 0x80246008"

That's what led me to check the status of the BITS service. It's set to Automatic but is stopped. When I try to start it I get:

I'm trying to test the integrity of some ".cab" packages through DISM and Package Manager but I keep getting the generic error message "the system cannot find the file specified".

In Package Manager, I use the syntax,

Command Prompt> pkgmgr.exe /ip /m:c:\test\test.cab

Alternatively, I might add quotes around the pathname:

Command Prompt> pkgmgr.exe /ip /m:"c:\test\test.cab"

The error received in pkgmgr is:

Operation failed with 0X80070002.  The system cannot find the file specified.

My initial impression was that my syntax was incorrect, though I can't spot the error.  The path points to "test.cab" which is a renamed windows addon which contains the necessary "svcpack" folder and the "entries_XX.ini"
file.  I've used several different ".cab" files, including some downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog, with the same result.  Hopefully this rules out the possibility of a corrupt or incompatible file.  I've also tried this
whole procedure on different computers, and have received the exact same error code, so i doubt the pkgmgr tool istelf is corrupt.

Lastly, I've tried an alternative Windows 7/8 tool DISM to try to achieve essentially the same task using the following syntax in an elevated command prompt:

Commnand Prompt> dism.exe /online /add-package /packagepath:c:\test\test.cab

This produces a similar error:

A:"The System cannot find the file specified" Error from Installation

I've always found this to be one of the most annoying problems you can get.

Try copying the driver files from the CD (or the entire CD) to a folder on your hard drive and install from there. Before you attempt the install make sure the printer is NOT plugged in to the computer - the setup program should prompt you to connect it. I've found this to be a very important step as the drivers won't install properly otherwise.

Quote:




Could not load file or assembly 'sorttbls.nlp' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find this specified File.





Now this is coming form ATI Catalyst, I know so cause the error message has the new CCC logo. Now what stinks is its apparently something wrong with Microsoft NET, yet I have googled the problem and tried many fixes but with no avail. Right now I am pretty
mad cause I have CCC which wont work anymore, Zune, and also my windows is freaking out. Now I have spent the last hour trying to fix this dang issue and need help as I am stuck... Please help, ANY help at all is much appreciated.
Also this was after I had to restore my system because the new Microsoft updated screwed up my system...

A:Could not load file or assembly 'sorttbls.nlp' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find this specified File.

Hi,

I've searched the sorttbls.nlp file in my computer, and find that this file should be a component of the .NET Framework 2.

Also I find some information in the AMD support website:

• The AMD Catalyst™ Control Center requires that the Microsoft® .NET Framework SP1 be installed for Windows XP and Windows Vista. Without .NET SP1 installed, the AMD Catalyst™ Control Center will not launch properly and the user will see an error message.
• When installing the AMD Catalyst™ driver for Windows operating system, the user must be logged on as Administrator or have Administrator rights to complete the installation of the AMD Catalyst™ driver.

Please refer:

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst112ReleaseNotes.aspx

You can try the steps below to resolve this problem.
Firstly, please go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program -> Turn Windows features on or off,


• If the checkbox of Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 is not been selected, then select it and click OK.
• If the checkbox of Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 is been selected, unselect the checkbox first, click OK. Then open the Turn Windows features on or off again and select Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1, click OK.
Then, please try to install the AMD Catalyst™ Control Center again.
If the above steps still not working, please perform the steps in this blog to fix the .NET Framework 2.0 in Windows 7:

Hello everyone,

Firstly I would like to say that this seems like a swell enough forum as is and I am frankly out of ideas. About a year ago I had backed up a rather large series of files under one name for my roommate who was in the process of doing some "spring cleaning" on his computer. Fast forward to now and he is out of Hard-drive space damn near and has been unable to find the reserve file himself. Below is the directory under which I named and saved the around 200gb file of games and old-ROTC documents. Regardless the file needs to be found and even after un-hiding all files from the control panel, I have yet been able to locate it. It would seem to be simple enough, one would think that you could see the file name sitting above Program Files but it is not. Any one have any ideas, we would rather not have to reformat/ system restore if we can avoid it.

C:\common_ORIGINAL NEW FAGS
 

A:File path error/ Cannot find file directory/file itself

I used a software called TreeSize which shows the size of all folders on the disk. Thinking that the Windows OS is around 18gb, a 200gb files should really stick out with TreeSize.

A:IE "Cannot find <garbage characters>. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct." error. Cannot use IE...

After doing some more research, I fixed the problem.It was really bizarre, whenever I launched IE I would get a message box with the following error: "Cannot find 'http://<garbage characters>'. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct." After clicking [OK] it would then try to open up IE again, basically causing an infinite loop of errors.Firefox would not run either. As soon as I launched Firefox it would crash immediately.I tried removing and reinstalling Firefox and also tried upgrading to IE8. Nothing worked. The IE8 install gt hung trying to download.To make a long story short, I found this thread via google:http://www.d-a-l.com/help/general-internet...-name-make.htmlI restored my Internet options from Control Panel and everything works again.It was pretty brutal, I think the Internet options were set set to another language and that caused all of the problems.

Hi,
 
  As the title suggests, this is what my computer displays as it attempts to start up. It has Windows 8 installed, and what happens is it will try to load up, get to the Windows screen, which then will take a long time, for it to change to a blue screen displaying 'The system cannot find the file specified'.  I click it, and the screen goes black and comes back in a more purplish blue than before.  If that gets clicked, the procedure starts over with black screen and then back to the message and purplish screen.
  How it came about is, I came home, started up the computer, went to the web for looking at the news.  It blue-screened and restarted, and began the above.  It has always been iffy, though, and would blue-screen fairly often (several times a week), but would always come back, though.  I haven't been able to do major surgery on it, since my work is on it, and the thought of losing the work accidentally, was not palatable.
  This has (needless to say) been a huge issue since all my work is on it.  What I did was race out and buy a new hard drive, Windows 10 and a BlacX hard drive reader, which I since have tried to get going as a new install.  So far so good, but with mixed results.
  Anyway, is there anything I can do to get the old hard drive going again, without losing files from it?  I tried the Automatic Repair, but that did nothing.  Then I tried replacing the boot files, and that didn't ... Read more
