    Hello,

    this crappy error is getting on my nerves..i really dont get it

    on some installations like Cyberlink PowerDVD i'm getting this error
    i checked the RPC service and the one is always running and the second i manually started.. still nogo

    i know about this site: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q224370

    this solution does not apply for Win XP Pro .. however i checked for example:
    start,run: net start rpcss
    service is already running


    could someone help me out on this?
    is it coming from that tool: "WWDC" by closing port 135 DCOM?

    normally i manage to fix anything but this sh*t is driving me nuts hehe ;)

    I have no real clue about your dilema but as a user of WWDC I have from time to time had to re-enable certain items and found out by doing so it helped with what ever I was trying to solve. So if your looking for someone to nudge you to temporarily disable WWDC selections....that's my best shot :eek:

    hey guys :)

    first i fired up WWDC.. enabled DCOM(135) and Enable LOCATOR(445)
    rebooted
    fireup services.msc
    started DCOM server process launcher (i cant really remember if i started service bfore install?!)

    powerdvd installed fine now though hehe! :)
    then i checked services and noted that the DCOM server process launcher still was trying to start

    my guess its WWDC..anyway all up&running..cant do whitout me powerdvd

    its windows worm door cleaner, and its a small tool that makes ur xp a bit more secure by disabling messenger, dcom, and a few other services.
