Unable to set up local web

I cross-posted about this a few days ago to the IIS and FrontPage groups
(see: http://tinyurl.com/3xvw9r) but it appears that no-one there knows what
I can do about it (it's two days since anyone but me posted to that thread);
and in any case it seems to be basically an XP configuration problem rather
than anything wrong with FP or IIS as such, so I thought I should try
posting here. Can anyone help? I've now spent an entire week trying to fix
this and I'm tearing my hair out now. Please can someone help?

I recently bought a new laptop which had XP Pro SP2 installed, but not IIS.
I then installed IIS and the FP Extensions (which are definitely configured
correctly as far as IIS is concerned).

However, if I open My Network Places and open "Add Network Place", and type
in http://localhost, I get the message: "The folder you entered does not
appear to be valid. Please choose another."

Clearly, something is blocking my computer from recognising the existence of
local webs, even though as far as IIS is concerned, my local web is set up
correctly, and so are the FP Extensions.

2) If I right-click My Computer and select Manage, then open the Event
Viewer, under Application I can see several Errors, all of which say "COM+"
under "Source"; and if I double-click on any of them, the Event Properties
Description reads: "The run-time environment has detected an inconsistency
in its internal state. This indicates a potential instability in the process
that could be caused by the custom components running in the COM+
application, the components they make use of, or other factors. Error in
d:\qxp_slp\com\com1x\src\comsvcs\txprop\dtcinfo.cpp(158).hr=8000fffff:
TransactionManager->GetWhereaboutsSize. For more information see Help and
Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp"

If I click the link to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp, I get a
message saying There is no additional information about this issue in the
Error and Event Log Messages or Knowledge Base databases"

I googled for that error and found http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909444.

The article is way over my head but it does mention the COM+ application
error that I'm getting. Please could some of the MVPs here look at this
article and let me know if it's relevant to my problem, and if so, in
layman's language, what I need to do to fix it?

Do I need to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows from scratch, or
is there a less drastic solution? What would the MVPs here do if they had
the problem I have?

Dave

Hi Nass, thanks for the links. Comments inline.

| 1= Unable to Add a Web Folder to the My Network Places Folder
| http://support.microsoft.com/kb/269681

I can add any web folder *other than* http://localhost (or subwebs of
localhost), so I'm not sure that this kb article is relevant to my problem?
It seems to me to be saying that it relates to a problem where one can't add
*any* web folders to the My Network Places Folder? Also, it says it applies
to Windows 2000 but doesn't mention XP; and if I understand it correctly, it
also says that a symptom of the problem it is talking about is that
"Userprofile\Application Data\Microsoft\Msdaipp folder can't be created,
whereas I do have a folder of that name in that path (although it is empty).
Also, I am not aware of having any system policies and in any case, I get
the problem when logged in as Administrator, when surely system policies
wouldn't be relevant?


| You cannot connect to a Web folder from a Windows Server 2003 or Windows
| XP x64 machine
| http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888123

I don't have either of those operating systems and in any case, Internet
Explorer *can* connect to http://localhost (as well as to all remote web
sites) - my problem is just that I can't add http://localhost to My Network
Places, or open http://localhost or its subwebs from within FrontPage.
(although I *can* open c:\inetpub/wwwroot\ and its subwebs as webs from
within FrontPage).


| Error message when you try to open or to create a Web folder in FrontPage
| 2000 or in FrontPage 2002
| http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287399

That article asks me a lot of questions but I can't see any solutions in it?


| Troubleshooting Web Folders:
| http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287402/

Step 1: It says not to perform this step if I'm running Windows XP, unless
I'm misunderstanding it?

Step 2: I've re-registered the three dlls it mentions, but it made no
difference.

Step 3: I deleted the registry key it mentioned, and I then ran Detect and
Repair from within FrontPage. Then I restarted my computer and tried to add
http://localhost to My Network Places, but got the same error message as
before.

Step 4: I ran the MDAC Component Checker which said I have MDAC version 2.8
SP1 (which appears to be the latest version). I then ran the MDAC
installation program, MDAC_TYP.exe (from http://tinyurl.com/2krsts), which
it said was the install program for MDAC 2.8 SP1, and I got a message: "This
setup does not support installing on this operating system", which is rather
confusing! Any ideas?

Step 5: The MSDAIPP did exist and not was marked as readonly. The article
also says in this step to check that the "C:\Windows\Nethood" folder is not
readonly but I didn't have a folder of that name so I created one, although
the kb article doesn't actually say what to do if "C:\Windows\Nethood"
doesn't exist.

Step 6: I ran webfldrs.msi, selected "Reinstall" and restarted my computer.
Then I went to My Network Places and tried to add http://localhost, but got
the same error message as before.

Steps 7 - 10: These steps describe symptoms I don't have, so didn't seem to
be relevant.

Step 11: Didn't seem relevant to Windows XP Pro.

Step 12: I already do have the FP Server Extensions installed, and kb295596,
which it links to, mentions Windows 98 and not XP.

Step 13: I don't have any proxy settings in IE and in any case I *can*
connect
to http://localhost from within IE.

Step 14: I don't understand this one and am not sure it's relevant.

Step 15: I'm already using Office 2000 SR1. I don't know what it means by
"Office Server Extensions SR1.1"


| Software Update for Web Folders (KB907306)
|
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

I installed the update but it didn't fix the problem; and in any case, the
symptoms the article describes are not my symptoms..


| 2= Availability of Windows XP COM+ Hotfix Rollup Package 9
| http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895200

I already seem to have more recent file date and times than the files it
installs (e.g. Catsrv.dll on my system is dated 26-July-2005 wherease the
hotfix installs a version of that file dated 09-Mar-2005; ; and the symptoms
the article describes are not my symptoms..


http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.general/browse_thread/thread/5b4b9872a8c5052f/87d89f6c3174d566?q=IIS+doesn't+display+ASP+pages,+COM%2B+damaged&rnum=1&hl=en|
| http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/Sho...16469&SiteID=1

I've reinstalled COM+ as described in kb315296 but still get the problem.
Also, I'm a bit worried because at one point the article says I should
reinstall MS04-012, but on the download page it says it's only available for
SP1 and not for SP2, so I'm not sure if I'm vulnerable now?

No hardware problems.

This is weird! Is it time to reformat the hard disk and reinstall Windows?

Maybe Windows Firewall is blocking you. Try turning it off and see if you
can create one then.

Good luck.

Hi nass

I contacted Microsoft support and eventually they came up with the following
fix, which worked. There is no kb article on the subject.

The solution was to remove and reinstall the settings for MS DTC (Microsoft
Distributed Transaction Coordinator) and re-registering COM components for
IIS, as follows:

1. Open the command prompt
2. Uninstall msdtc using the following command; "msdtc.exe -uninstall"
3. Open the registry editor using regedit.exe
4. browse to and delete the following registry string;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSDTC
5. Reinstall msdtc using the following command "msdtc.exe -install"
6. Reregister the IIS COM components using the following command;
"%Windir%\System32\inetsrv\rundll32 wamreg.dll, CreateIISPackage"
