    PLCMPR5.SYS : does anyone know whose it is?

    I am trying to track down which manufacturer/product might be associated with the file <big>PLCMPR5.SYS</big> (or possibly PLCMPR5.DLL) which is supposedly required by a "NDIS Protocol Driver service" that I am having trouble with.

    Google gives a single reference (in German) so this is a bit of a voice crying in the wilderness...

    Thanks!

    John,

    That German page seems to refer to an error in your network adapter drivers.

    Hence my interest in who perpetrated the drivers!

    I can probably just disable the service, which doesn't appear in "Services", by changing
    HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesPLCMPR5 (there is also a PLCNDIS5...)
    "Start" value to 4 instead of 3
    (by analogy with some other Disabled services)

    But I'd like some info about the manufacturer of the drivers for (presumably) a NIC...

    Later...

    Ploughing round in the utility provided on the homeplugs CD I discover at the end of a:<pre>Diagnostics Report: Wed Mar 22 17:35:52 2006
    <snip>
    eConnect HomePlug V3.1, Build 0.3
    Library: PLCLIB.DLL V5.3, Build 16.58
    Library: PLCNDIS4.SYS V5.3, Build 16.58
    Library: PLCNDIS5.SYS V5.3, Build 16.58</pre>


    Fairly similar to PLCMPR5.SYS, perhaps?
    So much for their Technical Support telling me that these homeplugs didn't have/need any drivers... [Grrrrh...]
