RPC Stub version error in IE

By brian ·
Greetings,

Suddenly, when I try to print from IE 5.5 SP2, I get a script error saying I have an incompatible version of the rpc stub. I've checked out Technet, to no avail. There they mention the error in relation to a general Windows error relating to the Windows Installer.

I've reinstalled IE SP2 and also did a repair on Office 2000 (in the Technet article mentioned above, it referenced Office 2000 so I thought I'd give it a try). Either way, it didn't help.

RPC Stub version error in IE

Cause
This error is caused by an incompatible version of a DLL
that was installed on the system, such as Oleaut32.dll,
Olepro32.dll, Asycfilt.dll, Stdole2.tlb. For example,
version 3.50 of Oleaut32.dll is installed and used only
by Windows XP and so causes this error if it is installed
on a machine running any other operating system.
WILL POST FIXES NEXT

This fix was mentioned in the Technet article I mentioned above. All of my versions of those files are x.0.4515.

Resolution

If you have Microsoft Office or and Office 2000 component installed, install the Office 2000 Service Release 1.

If you Are Using Windows 98 or 95:
On Windows 98 and 95, this error may be caused by a bad version of oleaut32.dll. To correct this problem, follow these directions to remove the old file and reinstall it.

Warning: This resolution requires you to modify your System folder. Modifications to the Windows system, if not done correctly, can cause serious problems to your system.

Download to your Desktop, but do not run, the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) file appropriate for your system. For more information on DCOM see the Additional Information section.

Windows 98: dcom98.exe
Windows 95: dcom95.exe

Select Start > Shutdown

Select Restart in MS-DOS mode.

At the command prompt c:\WINDOWS, enter the following commands on separate lines as shown. Windows automatically restarts.
CD c:\windows\system
rename oleaut32.dll oleaut32.old

exit

Ignore the error message: "A required .DLL file,
C:\windows\system\oleaut32.dll, was not found." This error message appears because the file was renamed in step 4.

Log in as you normally would.

Double-click the file you downloaded to your Desktop in step 1. Click Yes to the dialog that opens. The dcom.exe file installs a New oleaut32.dll file.

After DCOM has been installed, select Start > Restart.
If your computer fails to function properly after
following the aboveinstructions, you can restore your
original oleaut32.dll file by doing the following:

Select Start > Shutdown.

Select Restart in MS-DOS mode.

At the command prompt c:\WINDOWS, enter the following
commands on separate lines as shown. This restores the
old oleaut32.dll file.
CD c:\windows\system
rename oleaut32.old oleaut32.dll
exit

Here is how I fixed it:
Check the machine in question for version 5.6.0.8515 of dispex.dll in the C\Windows\System dir.
If the file is present, replace it with an older version, like 5.0.0.3715 from the Win98 SE CD.

I would also like to mentionthis; it is a given that everyone that frequents this site is well versed in administration, troubleshooting, repairing etc. I feel it is unnecessary to post direct quotes from Technet. This is not any help since we all have access to Technet. When dealing with Microsoft products it should be a given that we, as professionals, know enough to check Technet before coming here. When working on a problem, I need it fixed NOW. Therefore Tech Republic is NEVER my first stop since I will have to wait for an answer. Keep the direct quotes from Tech Net.
