I just knew with my luck it wouldn't go nicely! So can anyone help, I am just going around in circles.

How to fix "AirPlusCFG.exe Entry Point Not Found"
After computer reboot after installing SP3 these dialog boxes appear.

AirPlusCFG.exe Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point apsSearchInterface could not be located in the
dynamic link library wlanapi.dll.

WZCSLDR2.exe Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point apsSearchInterface could not be located in the
dynamic link library wlanapi.dll.

I found the fixes below but don't understand how to 'fix' my computer so it goes back to having no error messages on restart. I do understand that SP3 has it's own wlanapi.dll file or something similar, as I can't find that file, which overwrote stuff, but even with the stuff below, I don't know how to find the service pack uninstall folder. All I can find is it is in the Add/remove folder. Which after trying to find new drivers, and figure out how to install them, that folder is looking better all the time.

Fixes I found
The D-Link AirPlus Utility does not work with Windows XP Service Pack 3. Upon loading, it displays: “AirGCFG.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure enry point apsGetInterfaceCount could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll.”.

This occurs because Windows XP Service Pack 3 introduces a new file which
overwrites files of the same name installed by other vendors. A workaround is
to use the OEM's version of the file which was backed up in the service pack
uninstall folder. If this file is placed in appropriate directories, it will
be loaded by the wireless application instead of the new Microsoft version
located in the System32 directory.

xcopy %Windir%\$NtServicePackUninstall$\wlanapi.dll
"%ProgramFiles%\D-Link\AirPlus G"
xcopy %Windir%\$NtServicePackUninstall$\wlanapi.dll
"%ProgramFiles%\ANI\ANIWZCS2"

This issue will also occur if the post-SP2 KB918997 update is installed, in
which case the vendor's file is backed up elsewhere:
xcopy %Windir%\$NtUninstallKB918997$\wlanapi.dll
"%ProgramFiles%\D-Link\AirPlus G"
xcopy %Windir%\$NtUninstallKB918997$\wlanapi.dll
"%ProgramFiles%\ANI\ANIWZCS2"

I would just run/open my computer then go to C:\WINDOWS\system32

That wlanapi.dll file should be here .

Copy it to C:\program files\D-Link\AirPlus G

And C:\Program Files\ANI\ANIWZCS2, then reboot
