RPCEmu 0.8.9 is available at http://www.marutan.net/rpcemu/ , I would
suggest that you try that first. In Settings > Configure... the CPU type
needs to be StrongARM. Not that it may make a difference to networking,
but is your copy of Win7 32 or 64bit? Other writers here have reported
networking success - and failure - with other Win7 versions.

I see your error message, if I try to run two copies of RPCEmu (ie 4.39
and 5.19) at the same time. I guess that this must be because the first
copy connects to the rpcemu bridge, so access for the second copy is
refused. Could some other program have already claimed your bridge? Does
the bridge survive Win7 re-booting? If not, I suppose that this could
also explain your error message.
