NetBeui on XP and Vista

Installation instructions for NetBEUI protocol on Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2002.

  • copy nbf.sys into the %SYSTEMROOT%SYSTEM32DRIVERS directory

  • copy netnbf.inf into the %SYSTEMROOT%INF directory

  • open network connection properties and use "Install..." button to add NetBEUI protocol


NetBEUI (NBF) is a non-routable protocol suitable for small networks.  Support for this protocol in Microsoft Windows has been discontinued.  If you still need it, you can download the support files from here.

Why do I still use NetBEUI?  Could you believe this - Some of my computers (circa 1992) in my office runs on Microsoft Windows 3.11 with MSDOS 6.0 running Clipper (dBASE) application.

    This procedure doesn´t work for Vista. When I try to install NetBeui (logged in as admin) an "access denied" message pops up.
