FdpHost Configuration

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

For the Windows operating system to successfully detect and work with network devices, the Function Discovery Provider Host (FdpHost) service must be running. FdpHost must load two dynamic-link library (DLL) files, fdSSDP.dll and fdWSD.dll, as processes in its service. If these DLL files are not present, or if they are not correctly registered with the Windows operating system, the FdpHost service will not start.


Event ID Source Message
