How can I reinstall the RPC server service once it has been deinstalled? I don't see it in the list of available services, only RPC Configurator and RPC support for banyan vines.

I had some trouble with the NIC and deinstalled all service modules from the network properties. After solving the problem, I reinstalled all services. Now I wanted to add a network printer as default, but the process aborts because the "RPC server" is not installed. The RPC configurator service is installed and the service is started.

Do you have any Service Pack version in use? After re-install the NIC and services, you need re-install the Service Pack in use too.

Is that for definite? I was wondering about this. I use SR3. So you say that after any substantial change, the SR has to be reapplied?

Okey, I reapplied the SR3, no change. In short again:

When I try to install a new printer, I get an error message:

"The operation could not be completed. The RPC server is unavailable"

What the heck is this service and why the hell is it unavailable?

Quick update. I just noticed that for some strange reason the spooler process is not running.

Copy the latest version of Spoolss.exe and Winspool.drv from either NT CD-ROM and NT4SP3. They are at \winnt\system32 and \winnt\system by default.
