WORM CAUSING DCOM PROBLEMS

Niakwa support has recently received several reports of NPL 5.10 suddenly refusing to start. Error 0x14 is reported, with a Last DCOM error of "Server execution failed" or "RPC server is unavailable".  Many of these cases have been traced to a worm type virus that disables RPC services on Windows 2000 and Windows XP machines.  If a system had been able to run NPL properly then suddenly can't run NPL for, no apparent reason, check to see if the machine has been infected with this virus.

Many of the popular anti-virus web sites can advise you on removing the infection and restoring your system to complete functionality.  It may be necessary to manually re-enable RPC services or DCOM on computers that have been affected.
