Welcome to TSG!
RPC (Remote Proceedure Call) sometimes gets overwritten by some program you downloaded and any subsequent downloads\installs may be looking for a certian version and not finding it.
Follow these instructions and see if it fixes the problem.
During program setups
Error-Incompatable rpc stub found
It seems this problem occurs when the current version oleaut32.dll for your OS is overwritten by a newer copy or another third party version. Installshield looks to C:\Windows\System for its version and that will be the one to change.
You will have to extract a copy of oleaut32.dll from your OS windows CD and replace the one in C:\Windows\System
Thanks a lot Dave. I am having a hard time finding the file that is to be extracted off of the WIN 98 CD. Do you have an approximations as to where it might be located? In the mean time I will continue to search for it. Also, are there any tricky steps to replacing the file???
Dave, I found the file using the Find file option. Sorry about the run-around, I am not up to speed with all of my computer skills! On a similar note, in order to replace the existing file, do I delete the old one and just move the new one in its place? That seems a litle to easy, so rather than doing something I might regret, I will wait to hear back from you. Thanks a bunch for the help.
Don't delete it, you still might need it. Sounds wierd, but true. The best practice for exchanging files is to rename the file to (soandso).OLD. If something should happen, this way you can change it back.
Sorry had to watch Jurassic park III with the little guy. He wanted to see how I grew up with the Dinosaurs. Yes you should rename the oleaut32.dll to oleaut32.old and then extract to new copy.
Sorry about the delay.
Thanks for the help all. I just tried to rename the file and it would not allow me to, saying that windows was currently using the file. Any suggestions? Thanks for being so patient. Just right click and rename, right?
