Removal of Cisco WLAN 350 drivers breaks Windows File Protection.

Posts: n/a

Just wanted to post this so that Google would index it and maybe save
someone a little time. I just wasted a week on this.


The following caveat has not been resolved in Install Wizard version 1.3.

CSCed94476. Uninstalling ACU 6.x prevents changes to Windows font

When you uninstall ACU version6.x, the Install Wizard deletes the
layout.inf file from the Windows\Inf directory (for example,
C:\WINNT\Inf), which consequently prevents you from changing the size of
Windows fonts. To work around this issue, copy the layout.inf file from
another location on your computer (such as the directory containing your
Windows installation files or service pack installation files), from your
Windows installation disk, or from another computer running the same
operating system with files of similar vintage and paste it into your
Windows\Inf directory


What they don't mention is that nuking the layout.inf breaks Windows File
Protection. WFP will prompt "Please insert your into the CD-ROM drive"
when a protected file restoration is needed because without the
layout.inf, it doesn't even know what disc is needed!
