You remove the Client for Microsoft Networks network component and then you restart the computer. After you restart the computer, if you try
to start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS), you may receive
the following error message:
System error 1075 has
occurred. The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for
If you open the event viewer for this problem, you may
notice the following log message:
The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service depends on the following nonexistent service: LanmanWorkstation
Note You also receive this error message in Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4).
In Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) and in Microsoft
Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3) and SP4, the BITS service lists the LanmanWorkstation service as one of its dependent services. In some network environments
(for example, in a Novell only network), if you remove the Client for Microsoft Networks networking component, the LanmanWorkstation service is removed from the computer. In such cases, the BITS service does not start because the dependent service cannot start,
and the service controller creates an event log entry that states that the BITS service did not start because the dependent service LanmanWorkstation cannot be started.
