RPC server unavaileble

Guest

Hi.
I am getting quite desperate and pulling the little hair i have left :) as i
have now had this eror message for a few weeks and simply cant find a
solution I have 2 PC one is running Vista Ultima registrated, i will call new
PC(64bit) and the other Vista Ultima trial base(32bit) i will call old PC. I
can share my folders from Old PC in network sharing but when i try to share
folders from new PC i get an error that RPC server is unavalible. I can see
the computers from both PC,s in the network map but i cant open any shared
folders. I have tryed "netsh winsock reset" and "netsh int ip reset" but the
same result. When i installed Vista in the beginning it worked and i could
share but over time i have installed different programs and i did not notice
that the sharing got a problem so i dont know to what restore point i could
go. I hope that i will find help here and a solution to the problem. I have
been thinking on reinstaling Vista again but i think i will than need to
reinstall all programs and games again, is there a way to re-install Vista or
to repair the instalation and network? If you need any info please ask, any
help is appriciated.
Thanks.

Based on MS article, this issue can occur for any of the following reasons: • The RPC service may not be started.
• You are unable to resolve a DNS or NetBIOS name.
• An RPC channel cannot be established.

Can you ping each other by IP? if yes, can you ping it by name?

In this case, delete the old map and re-map it. Please post back with the result.
