Hi, i have a problem with the remote access connection manager(rasman) service. it refuses to start because the sstpsvc(secure socket tunnelling protocol service) is corrupt, or so i think. when i try to start the SSTP service, it says the sstp service has started and stopped. some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs. i needed the sstp to start in order for the rasman to start or else it would have the error, dependency group failed to start. i found the work around which worked for me last time on vista and windows 7 rc 32bit. which was to go to the regedit, local machine-> system->current control set-> services-> rasman and remove the sstpsvc from dependOnservice. however this does not work for win 7 ulti rtm 64 bit. i tried the same method and i get a error 87: the parameter is incorrect. please help me i really need the service to start to use mobile broadband. and also, i do not want to reformat as i have too much stuff and no time to back up. can anyone help?
