Years ago for some unknown/mistaken reason I uninstalled ipv6 on one of my XP laptops.
I have not been able to reinstall ipv6 - neither via the commandline nor the GUI.
The error message is»

Could not add the requested component. The error is: A service installation section in this INF is invalid

I have found/read» ipv6 % inf to no avail ...

Any helpful replies/insights appreciated ...

What Service Pack version/level of XP?

How-to install (NOT the same as your link - why do you use that krap website?) -
http://support.micro....com/kb/2478747

In addition, apparently if you are SP2, you need IPv4 installed FIRST and then install IPV6 support. A download for IPv6 when XP-SP1.

Try googling "xp ipv6 support" (without quotes) instead...

P.S. how do you mean "uninstalled"/"GUI"? Via "Network Connections"?

What Service Pack version/level of XP?

This XP-Home laptop has sp3 and had sp3 when I uninstalled ipv6.
The issue is why XP gives the error message that it gives and what to do about it ...
I do not know how to speak / say it in "hacker's English" ...

One question (#1) answered out of two. What about the other (#2) one?

Have you searched like I said?

Is it an nLited SP3?

Was it initially SP1/SP2 and "upgraded" to SP3?

Have you disabled any Services?

Can you give some details?

The INF in question appears to be "NETIP6.INF". It really looks like your "uninstall" must have been more of a "deleted/removed".
