If you do not add network services to Windows NT during installation, you can add them after setup by running the network applet in Control Panel and choosing the YES button when presented with the option to install networking.


If there are no network components currently installed, running the network applet in Control Panel will present the user with a dialog box which reads:

Windows NT Networking is not installed, install it now?

If the YES button is chosen, the network installation portion of the setup program will be started and a full network setup will run, including automatic network adapter detection and installation of all standard network software. This network installation can be forced by simply removing all network software and network adapter drivers from Control Panel, restarting the computer, and following the above procedure. This can be useful if some necessary network drivers have been removed but the user is not sure which ones need to be replaced.

Note that interrupting the installation process after starting it as described above will result in a partial network installation that is best recovered by removing all network software listed in the network applet of Control Panel, restarting the computer, and restarting the network setup process.
