This is a registry error as thr RPC (Remote Call Procedure) cannot be started.

Microsoft KnowledgeBase article that mentions a Registry key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Rpc, but that key may fine on the your machine if you examined it with REGEDIT.

It is more likely the missing reg key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RpcSs

Messing about with the registry is not recommended if you are unsure ofr what to do as you can cause more problems, so I would not do that.

Unfortunately you do not say which OS you are using so I will guide you through XP and there will be similarties in Vista and win7

Quickest attempt. Uninstall printer and reinstall. If XP(or any) disconnect printer before reinstalling.

If that fails then I suggest running a CHKDSK from command prompt .

Easy in XP click start/run and type cmd in the box that comes up.

For Vista and 7 you need to do this

Click the ORB and
go to the run box and type in cmd. Now instead of hitting the Enter key, use Ctrl+Shift + Enter. You will be prompted with the obnoxious User Account Control dialog… but it will then open up a command prompt in Administrator mode. Then type in CHKDSK /r note there is a space between the K and the /.

It will tell you the disc is locked and would you like to run CHKDSK on reboot, enter y for yes, enter then type exit.

Reboot PC, this could now take some time as your HDD will be checked and repaired if a problem is found.

Please note there is no guarantee that this will solve the problem but it should.

Let me know how you get on.

Rpc server is unavailable when installing printer


Hi,
According to the error message, I assume that the spooler service cannot find out the printer on the network.
You may set the startup type of Printer Spooler service to Manual or Delayed Start for a test.
You could go to Customer support- just dial +1(800)243-0051 Toll Free.

RPC service may not be available or started on the client machine.
To start/ enable it go to 'Run Command' and type 'services.msc' , locate REMOTE PROCEDURE CALL (RPC) and start the service.

A system in our office is not able to print to a printer it shows RPC server unavailable.What is the solution for this? Help me out


Do you have more than one computer in your office?
Can you connect the printer to a different computer,
and then access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.hp.com
and download the device-driver for your printer, and your Operating System, and install that device-driver ?
If it prints on that computer, then there is something wrong with the software on the first computer.

Have you gotten an RPC error lately? They look a little like this:
- "RPC Server is Unavailable"
- OR "The RPC Server is too busy to complete the task"
- Here's the best one, "Access denied"
This is fun stuff. Unfortunately, an RPC error is one of the most common errors out there, and most of us don't even know what RPC is.
What is RPC?
RPC stands for "Remote Procedure Call." This probably still doesn't tell you much. Let's see if we can put this in non-technical language. RPC is the go between of your computer and server. This is what allows your computer to access a network.
RPC has two main parts to it: the client and the server. When the client (the program requesting something) sends a message to the server (the process that takes the order or performs the task), it is being asked to execute a certain procedure. The client waits for the server to process the call before resuming the execution.
Why Won't the RPC Server Work?
Usually, the RPC error pops up because there is some sort of miscommunication between the computer and the server. Most of the time, the wires get crossed somewhere due to Internet components that are not configured or activated. Sometimes it is just a matter of adjusting the Internet Firewalls or Proxy Server.
Quick RPC Error Fix
One way to investigate an RPC server error is to verify that you have enabled the DCOM Tunneling is enabled and not being blocked by any third party Internet Security programs such as AVG, Norton, McAfee, etc.
To do this:
1. Go to Start and Run
2. Type in DCOMCNFG
3. Click on Component Services
4. Click on Computers
5. In Computers, right click My Computer
6. Choose Properties
7. Go the Default Properties tab
8. Check the "Enable DCOM" tab
9. Go to the Default Protocols tab
10. Click Add
11. By the Protocol Sequence move the down arrow to Tunneling TCP/IP
12. Click OK
13. Click MoveUp button until Tunneling is at the top of the list
14. Now you may select SPX and Remove
15. Click OK or close the program out
16. Restart the computer
When You Need Help with the RPC Error
The RPC Error is such a common error, it seems like it should be easy to fix. However, the DCOM Tunneling fix is only the beginning of troubleshooting an RPC server error. The good news is that you really don't have to do anything when it comes to an RPC error if you maintain your computer with registry maintenance tools. Try researching the benefits of a registry cleaner to fix RPC errors.

HI While installing Vedio driver is trowing RPC server unava


Hello sans_sankar,

If it says RPC server is unavailable, that has to do with your internet connection.

Check if both ends of your ethernet or USB cable are properly plugged in their ports on your modem or router to your computer.

You can also turn the modem or router off for a minute then turn it back on again.

Your video installation should be complete, otherwise, it might be incompatible with your computer.

Hope that helps.


Yours truly,

Rpc server is unavailable


The computer displays error "RPC Server is unavailable".
It may be that you have a static value in your registry's field PagedPoolSize, we need to make this "0" (zero). check the steps ->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
