The best thing to do is if you still have the software for the printer is to reinstall the software.If you dont have it I am sure you can download it from the epson site.
ive got an epson 1000ics all in one printer using windows xp home. For some reason, the scanner stopped working. I used to scan using the camera and scanner wizard because the scan button on the printer never has worked. Now it shows the printer being an image scanner but there's no little arrow beside it. I don't think it's being recognized, but the printer works perfectly. The error says the install shield engine (ikernal.exe) could not be launched. the rpc server is unavailiable. Can anyone help?
