Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Re: Amyumi driver on 64 bit machine will not install

    I know this is an old thread but was having this problem and figured I would put down how I fixed it.

    Did a Google search for "amy uni rpc 1722" which found this page:

    Which got me looking at my Services ... had to switch RPC and Print Spooler from manual to Automatic AND start them.

    It installed fine after that ...

    This is the OS I am using and do not have a problem with it, so I do not think the OS is the problem. You might try doing a complete removal of alpha, even go in registry and remove all instances of Alpha and try again.

    After thinking about this. I started with V8, then upgraded to v9, this may be why I have no problem.

    The problem is only partially solved. The RPC error means that the print spooler service was not started on the server. It was set for manual, not automatic. After it was running, then the driver would install and all appeared to be good.

    But not so, even though it would get installed, the none of the options to print to PDF, RTF, TXT or HTML would work. The Alpha Five Printer was available, etc and the printing would start but ultimately would hang up and the printing process would never complete.

    I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing it must be the 64bit Windows 2003 server system as the culprit. In any event, I cancelled the VPS for 1and1 and try another. As Andy mentioned it may well be the digital signature stuff.

    Thanks for the comments

    "the RPC server is unavailable"

    This message is referring to the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Which is used to "Provides the endpoint mapper and other miscellaneous RPC services"

    Typically this service has a startup type of Automatic.

    Check your running running services and verify that it is currently started.

    I currently do not have a copy of 2003 64 bit edition, nor do I have access to a virtual server so your mileage may vary.

    I do know that the 64 bit vista and 2008 editions require that all drivers are digitally signed before they can be installed (this requirment is different from the 32 bit versions). If you find that your RPC service is running, I would next look into the issue of a signed/unsigned driver (I am not for sure if the 64 bit version of 2003 requires the drivers to be signed or not)

    With the 64 bit edition you are unable to run 16 bit applications. While the actual application is 32 bit, alot of issues have come up where the installer for the application is written in 16 bit, thus causing issues. But I believe your error message would be different if that was case. Just wanted to point that out, rather have too much info than not enough.
