RPC Server not Available error when using Windows Fax & Scan under Windows 7

    Question

  • Hi, I have a 3-month-old installation of Windows 7. I am attempting to use Windows Fax & Scan. It scans, but when I go to send, I get the error message "RPC Server is unavailable."

    I am NOT a techie. Anybody have English-language instructions about what to do?

    Thank you!  Sonni

  • I'm replying now as I've seen so many people with this problem, including me! My solution was to go to Fax > Tools and REMOVE THE ACCOUNT.

    Then ADD a new account - I called mine MyFax (just to be original) - and Lo! a problem for 12 weeks went away and I could Fax again.
