RPC-Server not available???

Posted on 1999-01-25
Last Modified: 2010-04-06
Hello, I try to develop a client/server application using the remoteconnection from Midas. The application works fine as long as I stay on the same machine. As I try to install the server part on a different machine and in my client app (on another machine) I alter the pcname of the remoteconnection then I get the following error:
Project Myproject raised exception class EOleSysError with message 'The RPC-Server is not available'.
Obviously I am forgetting something, can anyone tell me what I need to do?
Many thanks, Pascal Corstjens

Hi Pascal,

Try to run TRegsvr found in the bin directory of your delphi installation with the name of your server exe on the server machine.

Hope this helps

And you also look into this

If you got it running it's beautiful stuff, but looking for errors can cost a lot of time. Because when you got deeper involved into the NT system, you're not sure if the bugs are form you, microsoft or borland(inprise).

:O) Hope this will get you any further.
