When you start the WINS service, the following error message appears:
A System error has occurred
System Error 1 has occurred
Possible causes of this error message are:
If your WINS database is corrupted, rebuild the WINS database.
If you are attempting to start the WINS Service with a WINS.MDB file that was built from a WINS Server with a different IP Address, make sure the IP Address of the WINS Server is identical to the WINS Server that the database originally came from.
