    SNMP Trap Receiver

      Hope I can get some help with this apparent Windows/SolarWinds problem.

      Problem: Cannot start the SNMP Trap Service in order to get SNMP Traps collected from network devices

      Program: SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset V 9.2, installed on VM
      Application: SNMP Trap Receiver

      I attempt to start SNMP Trap Reciever
      Get message:
       Cannot enable trap reception. Did you install the Microsoft SNMP Trap service and is it running? You can install the Windows SNMP Service from the 'Add/Remove Programs' in Control Panel. If the Windows SNMP Trap Service is installed, please verify it is Enabled and Started.

      I attempt to start in Services - SNMP Trap Service
      Get message:
       Could not start the SNMP Trap Service service on Local Computer. Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

      Does SolarWinds install the file to a specific location thereby causing the Services app unable to find it and start the service?

      Thanks much.
