While performing inbox corruption repair with DISM commands in Windows 10, if you get 'Error 1726, The remote procedure call failed, here is how to fix it.

We all know that for most of issues in Windows, System File Checker (SFC) scan and DISM commands are the universal tools to fix. Running SFC scan will verify integrity of protected operating system files and replace damaged, incorrect versions with corresponding correct versions, wherever possible. However, if corruption of files is massive, it is beyond the scope of SFC and you need to work with DISM commands to get your system fixed.

Today, while working with DISM commands on one of my system, I found that deployment operation simply failed with error 1726, The remote procedure call failed. You can see this in below shown screenshot.

After researching a bit on this error, I found that it may occur due to following reasons:

  • The required service, Remote Procedure Call in this case, is disabled and not running.
  • Your system image has pending corruption repairs. This means if you ran a previous instance of DISM command and that operation was terminated unexpectedly.
  • A third-party program such as antivirus installed on your system is interrupting the DISM operation. You must disable or temporarily uninstall it and check if there are any changes in situation.

You can also follow the steps mentioned below to fix this problem.
