Lately I have been spending most of my time working and the rest of the time setting up the tablet. I will post some detailed articles about the tablet as soon as things have simmered down a bit at work, but for now here is a quick general troubleshooting tip. Are you getting “System error 1222” when you use the net command in Windows? If this is the case then the Workstation service on your machine has stopped for some reason. In my case the Zune theme on the Desktop machine started bombing out and crashed this and a few other services, don’t ask me why :)


C:\>net use
System error 1222 has occurred.

The network is not present or not started.

Start the Workstation service to fix this; here is how to do that.

  1. Go to the Start menu
  2. Click on “Run…”
  3. Type in “services.msc” and then click on OK
  4. Find the Workstation service in the list and right click
  5. Select Start from the popup menu

This should take care of the issue.

Great tip Johan
Thanks for this tip. I've had this problem and it ususally occurs after I've recieved an Generic Host error on startup.
