    Hello,

    As per your conversation posted above i come to know that you need to install a IPX for your computer which is running on the Windows 7 operating system for accessing the game on a network. But this might be very bad news for you to know that it has not supported after the Windows XP operating system which is the previous release of the Microsoft corporation. I hope i didn't disappointed you.

    Anyways thanks

    Hi buddy,

    Windows 7 does not support the IPX because the Microsoft has been removed the IPX and SPX from Windows operating system after the introduction of Windows Vista. This happens because the game which is played on the LAN using protocol are older now. But there is some method which will allow you to add this protocol but i am unaware of that. But next time i'll will visit with those command and method to implment.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I don't about the installation but i can give you some useful information about the IPX which will be helpful for you.Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) is the protocol that is used on many Novell NetWare networks. This section explains how to integrate Network Connections into an IPX network.The IPX/SPX protocol is not available on Windows XP 64-Bit Edition.

    In Windows XP, Network Connections supports NetWare and IPX networks by including:
    1. NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol, also known as NWLink, which is the Windows XP implementation of the IPX protocol.
    2. Client Service for NetWare client component, which provides access to NetWare shared file and printer resources.
    3. Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) IPX Configuration Protocol (IPXCP), which supports IPX over PPP for dial-up, virtual private network (VPN), and incoming connections. PPP connections use IPXCP, as defined in RFC 1552, "The PPP Internetwork Packet Exchange Control Protocol (IPXCP)," to configure PPP connections for IPX.

    This doesn't work. I get the message: "Could not add the requested feature. The error is: the specified module could not be found"

    Re: How to install IPX on Windows 7

    Looking around I found a link to a thread at Microsoft...

    But this site won't let me post it until I have posted 50 messages.

    Did a search on Yahoo for...

    "IPX on Windows 7"

    and the first result was the thread on microsoft so that should get you there.

    Last message on that thread has a link to a program called IPXWrapper.

    I did a search for...
    "IPXWrapper"

    and for

    "About IPXWrapper"

    and got the right page as the first result on Yahoo each time.


    I'm still on XP on all comps so I have no problem but started to look this up upon hear that there was no IPX support and it is just a matter of time...
