Com+ Event System failure boot error


Tim Zych

Windows 2000 SP4
When I boot up I see one warning in the Application Event Log:

The COM+ Event System failed to create an instance of the subscriber
{6295DF2D-35EE-11D1-8707-00C04FD93327}. CoCreateInstanceEx returned HRESULT

Any idea how I can troubleshoot this?



This problem occurs if the Patch UI Monitor component tries to call the
client user interface (UI) when no user is logged on.
