Hi all

I am using Installed Shield 6.3

I want to configure DCOM settings.
For this I am using an exe dcomperm.exe.
But with this I am not able to make

"Authentication level as connect" and
"Identity as Launching User"

Please suggest any solution

Thanks in advance

IS 6.3 provides two objects that can solve your problem. They are:

a) The DCOM Deployment object, and

b) Dcomcnfg

The DCOM Deployment object allows you to configure DCOM settings on the target system. It consists of a wizard that steps you through the configuration process. The DCOM Deployment Wizard allows you to configure the way your application uses DCOM on the end users system. You can set security
permissions, server settings, and more. The DCOM Deployment Wizard launches automatically when this object is selected.

Dcomcnfg is a utility that allows the user to configure their DCOM
applications. It handles all necessary DCOM settings. This object Copies the DCOMcnfg setup program to the user's temp directory. Then it Runs the setup program and finally removes this from the Temp directory.

Hope this helps!

Hi dhesog

But I am not getting .vbr file in my computer which The DCOM Deployment object demands. Without this I am not able to proceed.

Its help suggest for making some self registrable file group having
.tlb file, but in that also I am not able to proceed.
I dont know which tlb file to take.

Another way(Dcomcnfg) I suppose is for Windows 9x or Me. as its help tells.

please reply

Thanks a lot

With Regards
