RpcXdr Service Failed To Start.

In Event Viewer, "Service Control Manager" event 7000.  The RpcXdr service failed to start due to the following error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

In Device Manager, under Non-Plug and Play Drivers.  The device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.  (Code 24).

This has been working for years, the rpcxdr.sys file is still in the location the driver files point to.  It's C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\RpcXdr.sys and has not been modified.

hi

could you please check the event log again to see if any other services failed too JUST before the RpcXdr failure?

thanks,

There were lots of other services that had failed, they all depend on this service.  None of this service's dependencies failed.

just ignore all those depended services, see if other services failed BEFORE that one (by time)...

RpcXdr is the first to fail.  Followed by portmap, KePcnfsd, User Name Mapping, and then NFS.
