The fix

In Reply to: missing sccbase.dll/slbcsp.dll files for hp printer install

Okay this is not a hard problem to fix. Before I give you the instructions I want to make it CLEAR that I do not condone cracked/exploited copied of Windows or any other Microsoft product, neither does CNET so you should probably keep that to yourself from now on.


Firstly, delete all the copies of the dll you obtained from everywhere. There should only be one copy of each in the C:WINDOWSsystem32 folder.

Then you need to become familiar with regedit. Its a pretty easy utility to learn, but don’t mess around with stuff you could really mess stuff up. To start it up, go to the start menu, click run…, and type in regedit. We are a quarter of the way to fixing this now. Stay strong!

To get this to work you are going to need those two subkeys in your registry:

You can get to these paths through regedit. The two subkeys (keys are the things that look like folders in regedit): „Schlumberger Cryptographic Service Provider” and „Infineon SICRYPT Base Smart Card CSP” need to be created in the Provider key. In order to do this click on the Provider key and in the Edit menu click on new… then key in the submenu. Do this twice and rename the created keys:

Schlumberger Cryptographic Service Provider
Infineon SICRYPT Base Smart Card CSP

[Halfway there now!]

Okay, lets get crazy and add some info to these keys. Click on the keys you created. You should have one value in the window to the right . It should be named (default) and it should have (value not set). This is fantastic. Right click in the window to the right with the default value. In the new menu, click on string value. A new string value will be created you need to rename this value „Image Path” then right click it, and select „modify”. Set the value to C:WINDOWSsystem32slbcsp.dll for Schlumberger and C:WINDOWSsystem32sccbase.dll for Infineon.
[3/4 of the way done]

Two both of the created subkeys add two DWORD values the same way you added the string values. These values should be named „SigInFile” and „Type”. Simply modify the Type one to have a value of one (hexidecimal or decimal … it doesn’t matter numbers 1 – 9 are the same in both bases). Done!

That should do it for your pirated copy of windows, which is probably a crippled copy of windows used for corporations with lots of workstations that doesn’t require a key. If you are going to pirate OS software you NEED to learn your intermediate computer skills like regedit and batch commands etc… Don’t be lazy and expect everything to work for free and then complain about some customer service not getting back to you in a timely manner. And don’t post anything else here except thank you cause I just fixed your problem for FREE on my own time. Good luck.
