    I'm using Win98SE, when I run a setup file that I downloaded from the internet... it unpacks all the required files to install. Then right when it begins to go to the setup screen it comes up with this error message.

    -Error Number: 0x80070725
    Description: Incompatible version of the RPC stub.

    Setup will now terminate.

    This has happened with several program demos that I have downloaded. So my question is:

    Is there something wrong with my InstallShield or is it the a problem with the setup file and... is there any way to fix this problem?

    Thank You, Fran

    Welcome to TSG!
    It seems this problem occurs when the current version oleaut32.dll for your OS is overwritten by a newer copy or another third party version. Installshield looks to C:\Windows\System for its version and that will be the one to change.
    You will have to extract a copy of oleaut32.dll from your Win98SE windows CD and replace the one in C:\Windows\System

    Glad your up and running again.
    Ran across the problem awhile back. Whats unfortunate with that type of problem the message is refers to a RPC (remote proceedure call) which in fact is very seldom used.
    Again glad you got it fixed.
    Come see us whenever you need help or just want to hang around.
