    I know this is an old thread but I just went through many hours of no joy in trying to get NetBIOS enabled again. In the NIC properties it was enabled, but ipconfig /all showed disabled. And it was NOT working - I could not get this system to be seen or shares accessed on the network. I jumped though a lot of hoops with the registry and NetBT, WMIC, uninstalling NIC, trying different NIC, updating drivers, BIOS etc....was ready to restore the last backup from over 3 months ago and copy over current folders, (I know...).
    Then it dawned on me - the old days of Windows 95 through XP... one way to 'fix' issues like this was to remove the Client for MS networks, File and Print sharing..., and both IPv4 and iPv6.. also the MS LLDP protocol from the NIC properties, (just uncheck the boxes, close and reboot)… after booting re-check the boxes again.... WHAT A PAIN... was my last breath on this one... thought what the hell, why not?
    I have my NetBIOS back... that simple idea of removing the components in the NIC properties and adding again... I wanted to post this 'somewhere'... all the threads I have read are too old or closed.... I hope this helps someone... a voice from the past came to me... the simple solution so common then...
    Not a solution. Didn't work for me. The only real solution for windows 10 is to update to version 1809. The problem for me was on 1709, there is another build that has this same problem. But you only need to update it to 1809 and the problem will be automatically fixed

    Glad that worked for you kachman. Unfortunately when on older version of Win10, until those updates were to come out, there was no way to know they would fix this. For me - I had to go beyond what I wrote here - I had to do the registry edits, and these had to be done twice it seemed. I am not a fan of Windows 10.

    Netbios/NBF is gone. CIFS and SMB over NBT now handles that area.
