Hello

I need to setup and register a DCOM server on some machines using installshield. I noticed in a KB article, that DCOMcnfg was mentioned. Can I access this through installscript to programmatically set the user's server?

I need to know how to check if DCOM is even enabled... and perhaps enable it if it is not. I need to check if it exists for Windows95. Is there a way to do this?

I am currently using both Installshield Professional 6.2 and Installshield Developer 8 for a variety of setups. I would need to do this DCOM server for all of them. I am thinking I will do it in either 6.2 or 8, whichever works, as it's own silently running installation that is run during any main installation. Is this possible and intelligent? Does anyone have any better suggestions?

Please help!

Thanks
