Can anyone help me resolve this. I have a new scanner and trying to install the driver from the supplied CD. The error message appears with the wording " Incompatible version of the RPC stub- set up will now terminate "
I have Win 98 SE, which Microsoft regard as obsolete and no longer support freely!

I found this an explanation of this problem on this site click here, it is referring to the installation of different software, but is relevant to installing most types of software on a Windows 98 system.

Microsoft no longer actively support Windows 98, but there is so much information on the web that active support is hardly necessary.

Many thanks to all three of you!
It was a couple of hours before I looked for a reply, not realising that there were so many good friends standing by with almost instantaneous spot on advice, which I followed precisely and my new film and slide scanner is up and running perfectly.
This is a great place to come! Thanks again to
Jester2.spikeychris. and Gongoozler!
