Vista SP1 Network Map and XP SP3 Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) protocol
I have recently been trying to get my XP computers to show up on my Vista Network Mapbut I have SP3 installed and the Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) protocol isn't an option any more. I installed the Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) protocol on a SP2 machine and it worked but when I installed SP3 the Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) protocol isn't even available and the Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) protocol download only works on SP2. How do I get Vista's Network Map to see my XP SP3 machines now?

Manually.Unfortunately, KB922120 was supposed to be in SP3 (it's in the list of fixes), but people can't seem to actually find it in there.Also, the hotfix will only install on XP SP2, as you've learned.You can always install the update by hand, as outlined in this newsgroup thread and this KB article.HTH,

Finally after excruciating months for such a simple thing to be fixed Microsoft has released a official Fix which you the user have to go jump thrugh hoops, a fire pit, proove that your worthyand then get a secret email password protected and well very dramatic but unimpressing... So I decided to remove the drama and spoil the plot and hand it to you has it should be @ my blog http://x3webworx3.spaces.live.com/ and topic http://x3webworx3.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!E40FC8E37C2475AE!260.entry or if your still having issues and thers language restriction "my" old Posted fix still works irrespective oflanguage. http://x3webworx3.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!E40FC8E37C2475AE!234.entry And finally to prove that Im not a lying and that your not seeing things here the official ***... http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922120up the top click View and request hotfix downloads should take you to this page http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=922120&kbln=en-us terms and conditions lol for god sake its an update to you Microsoft mucking it all up. and by all mean go though and you get the same as in my link only mines faster and no nonsense... lol Honest to god Microsof grow up...

I have tried both 'fixes' suggested here, but each time I get the message 'Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system is newer than the update you are applying. There is no need to install this update'.Does this mean that Microsoft have actually released an update to SP3 that includes the fix?I have not got a Vista pc yet, but plan to get one very soon. I want to be sure that my three other xp machines will happily co-exist with it!Thanks, ErikTViking.

Erik, which "two fixes" have you tried? By my count, X3lectric posted two, and I posted one.The manual way does work (if done properly), even on an OS for which it was not quite meant (such as Server 2003, which I've also used it on.)[If this post helps to resolve your issue, please click the "Mark as Answer" or "Helpful" button at the top of this message.
