View Full Version : Installation ruins DCOM?

I' wondering if anybody ever seen the same problem...

Prconditions:
- WinNT 4.0 Server, SP6, logged on as NT Domain user
- Using OleView, I can activate WordPad (for example) object,
even if "Launch As Interactive User" flag is set

Now, I have my installation generated in Developer 7.01
(nothing complex, just files and registry entries about DCOM objects)
After installation, any attempt to create any COM object
if "Launch As Interactive User" flag is set, returns 0x80008005 error
(server execution failed)

Uninstalling seems to remove all the registry entries installed before,
but it does not cure the computer from the strange virus it caught!!!

What on Earth could I have done wrong???

Thank for any ideas,
Oleg Boulanov

All our new products has a DCOM server which we install..
I have NEVER expericenced a problem like this....
Are you trying to modify any DCOM settings manually? My tip
is that you try to remove all dcom related entries you have, and
add them one by one to reproduce the problem...

No, I do not modify any settings manually.
The only one I ever set (except standard (AppID,ClsId etc),
was LaunchAsInteractiveUser flag. And the problem is not with my objects,
but with system-level DCOM - none of the other (MS produced ones)
can not be instantiated... The only way to restore everything back - is to
reinstall
the OS (and all the service packs, etc). Right now I'm trying to convert my
project
to Standard Installation (instead of using Basic MSI)

The entire installation worked until I started using
new MSI engine (version 2.0.2600.0) instead of 1.2

Thanks for advice,
Oleg

Use DCOMCnfg to see what's the default security settings. Try a different
project which you don't touch any flag and see whether you can reproduce it.

You may accidently change the default DCOM settings.

Also, check system log to see exactly what happens. We don't touch DCOM
settings.
