Default Unable to install Microsoft TCP/IP Version 6 protocol

Whenever I attempt to install the install Microsoft TCP/IP Version 6 protocol
on WinXP Home SP2 either via the shell command "netsh interface ipv6 install"
or via LAN PropertiesInstallProtocolAdd I receive the error "Could not add
the requested component. The error is: An extended error has occurred." Does
anybody know how I can resolve this so that I may successfully install the
IPv6 protocol ?

Thanks in advance, Mack.

Hi, I had the same problem. I'm running Win XP (Pro) SP2. I fixed it
by enter the following command in the command prompt:
esentutl /p %windir%\security\Database\secedit.sdb
After that, installation of TCP/IP Version 6 worked fine.

Hope it will help someone,
Anders

That's brilliant! It totally worked. I don't know all that much about the
"guts" of MS but could you explain exactly what that command-line program is
and what it is that it did that allowed my winxp home sp2 to install ipv6?

Default Unable To Install Microsoft Peer-to-Peer Networking & TCP/IP Versi

This worked like a charm for me, too!
Anders, you're a Scandinavian genius!
Now why hasn't Microsoft put something like this in their Knowledge Base?
I've been looking high & low for 3 days trying to track this down; thank God
I just happened to notice that I couldn't install TCP/IP 6 as well, but my
main concern was the Peer-to-Peer component in Windows Networking.
Many, many thanks!

Hi
XP was released in 2001, At the time IPv6 was not a part of any mainstream
system.
E.g. Can you easily install new electronics gadgetry on a Car circa 2001.
Yes, if you are an avid self doer. No if you just go to the Dealer.

Default Also worked for XP/SP3

Thanks for the great tip.

I was reinstalling a broken IP stack as per TID 325356 and it failed with "an extended error has occurred."

Running Ander's command line did the trick.
Another entry added to my bag of tricks... many thanks.
