    The following is a quote from Frank Sander MS MVP
    <quote>
    How To: Fix "Incompatible Version of the RPC Stub"

    This error can be caused by a fault in v3.50.5041.0 OLEAUT32.DLL. Replace it
    with an earlier version to fix the problem. Since it is a system file, you
    will have to replace it using DOS. Copy the older version to C:\. Then go
    to the start button and restart your computer in MS-DOS Mode. If you have
    WindowsME, see below on how to do this.

    Once in DOS Mode, type the following (no quotes): "copy C:\OLEAUT32.DLL
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\OLEAUT32.DLL". When asked if you want to overwrite, type
    "Y". It will then say "1 file copied". Then restart your computer
    (alt+ctrl+del or you can just load windows by typing "win" at the DOS
    screen).

    For Windows ME Users: To load WinME in DOS mode, copy "COMMAND.COM" and
    "IO.sys" from "C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\EBD\" to a formatted floppy disk. Then
    restart your computer with the floppy disk in the floppy drive and DOS will
    boot.

    It's also reported that the following may be another reason for the problem:

    This problem may also caused by version 5.6.0.8515 of "dispex.dll". A user
    found version 5.6.0.6626 in SCR56EN.CAB . Extracted it with WinZip and
    replaced the "bad" version in WINDOWS\SYSTEM with it. So it might be
    worthwhile to also check on that file.
    You may also have to go to Start | Run and type
    regsvr32 dispex.dll
    They have updated Windows Scripting Host to fix the dispex problem and
    downloading and installing it again with your anti-virus turned off should
    fix it.
