RPC and folder related exceptions RRS feed

  • Question

  • StorageFolder.GetFoldersAsync() occasionally generates the following exception:

    The remote procedure call failed. (Exception from HRESULT

    When this happens, StorageApplicationPermissions.FutureAccessList.GetFolderAsync() generates the following exception:

    The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)

    Could anyone shed some light on its cause?

    Since this happens only occasionally, it is not a serious issue.

  • Hi Hong,

    Since your issue was encountered occasionally and worked fine in other time, I would recommend you check the environment of machine. I found someone has encountered this kind of issue before and solved by reinstalling the USB drive. You can see more info from http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsapps/en-US/62932f97-eadf-4384-90c9-86e4ec8a3466/credential-picker-winrterror-the-remote-procedure-call-failed?forum=winappswithhtml5.

    If you still have problem of this issue, please try to find more information and post here.

  • Thanks for the tip, Herro.  This has been reported in the error log of an app from users.  Per your post, at least we now know it may be related to external drives.  We will make the app inform users accordingly when this happens.
