Intel PROSet/Wireless Driver Missing Plugins

by Jove / August 26, 2005 7:12 AM PDT

I have this software installed on my laptop and I am using IBM access connections to manage my connection. The wireless card works fine, and so does the manager. Problem is that when I boot, I get an error message that states the following.

Error loading plug-ins. Application will exit.

I click Ok, but the wireless works fine. If you leave the error up, the wireless works fine, and the application never exits.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail. You guys are my last hope.

Error loading plug-ins. Application will exit
by thriscott / September 21, 2009 11:46 AM PDT

I am getting the following during every boot cycle:

?Intel PROSet/Wireless Error loading plug-ins. Application will exit.?

System is a Dell Inspiron 9300, Windows XP Pro SP3, Intel 2200BG wi/fi.

The system has generally been very good. I think this began when some other software was uninstalled to clean up space and it took out some bit of Intel PROSet software that it should have left alone. I have re-installed the Intel PROSet drivers from the Dell web site, and I have uninstalled the Intel 2200 card and let Windows re-install it. No joy.

The Wi/Fi still works fine at home, but I sometimes have trouble sending email from transient WiFi connections. In that case I can web browse, but I get errors sending email. I don't know if that is related or not. I was thinking that might be the bit of Intel Plug-In that got corrupted.

I don't know if I have an XP repair disk somewhere or not. We're in the middle of moving, but many times these systems come with the system pre-installed and no distribution CD.

Any other ideas? There has to be some registry setting that I can check?

Well I don't know about the original poster but I have a Dell Inspiron 9200 with XP Home. Though I don't know what difference that makes. As I don't know where the problem is, I don't know WHICH specifics to include.
