RPCSS Error

By mmcdade ·
Upon booting my WIN95 machine, I always get the error message "RPCSS: This program has performed an illegal operation". I always just click "OK" and the message/error goes away, the machine boots and then runs normally. The "error" seems benign -- it doesn't affect my system at all. I checked the MS Knowledgebase, but with absolutely no luck. I even searched the Web -- no luck.

Any ideas about this? Thanks!

I think these will answer your questions. have a good one.
PS I suggest a better search engine such as Bulls Eye.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in versions of Win95. This issue is resolved by the following updated file for Windows 95 and OSR2,and later versions of this file:
RPCSS.EXE version 4.00.951 dated 2/12/96 82,176 bytes
Goto Microsoft's website and search on this file and update your Win95 version. Also if you are still having problems. Upgrade to Windows98 and this problem will also go away. Win98 is worth the price of the upgrade. It does fix many of the problems in Win95. Good luck.

I don't believe you will be able to use more than 5. This is a very basic fax software Microsoft provides you. I would suggest using Winfax Pro. Then you will have a the funtions you need. Good luck.
