DCOM Error


P

powerwalk

Toshiba Satellite Pro, L300EZ1004X, Win XP Pro, SP3. Two years old, original
OS. Not a downgrade from Vista, 3 GB RAM, hard drive 85% free.

Recently upgraded to SP3. Beforehand I checked the Toshiba download site
for any new drivers for this model and downloaded and installed a new Intel
PRO/Wireless 3945ABG adapter driver I’ve been getting the following Error
in Event Viewer since the driver upgrade. I rolled back to the original
driver, but still receive this error.

Further, I can't find the exact key referred to in the Microsoft suggested
User Action

I am out of ideas where to look next. Anyone have a suggestion. I did a
Search for all changes made on March 28 when I first received the Error
message. This is the date I made the Intel driver change.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: DCOM
Event Category: None
Event ID: 10016
Date: 4/14/2010
Time: 3:52:53 PM
User: NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE
Computer: COMPUTETHREE
Description:
The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation
permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{A4199E55-EBB9-49E5-AF1A-7A5408B2E206}
to the user NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE SID (S-1-5-20). This security
permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.


For more information,
see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Explanation from Help Center
A program, the Clsid displayed in the message, tried to start the DCOM
server by using the DCOM infrastructure. Based on the security ID (SID), this
user does not have the necessary permissions to start the DCOM server.

User Action
Verify that the user has the appropriate permissions to start the DCOM server.

To assign permissions
1. Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value
HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32
The clsid value is the information displayed in the message.
2. In the right pane, double-click Default. The Edit String dialog box is
displayed. Leave this dialog box open.
3. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
4. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component
Services.
5. In the Component Services snap-in, expand Computers, expand My
Computer, and double-click DCOM Config.
6. In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name.
7. Right-click the program name, and then select Properties.
8. On the Security tab, in the Launch and Activation Permissions group
box, select Customize, and then click Edit.

Add the user to the permissions list, and give the user the appropriate
permissions.

Skip that bullshit above, it's totally unnecessary ... just use the next
steps:
3. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
4. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component
Services.
5. In the Component Services snap-in, expand Computers, expand My
Computer, and double-click DCOM Config.

Skip that cutesy "friendly" bullshit, since the event viewer makes no
mention of any "friendly name" ... View => Detail to see the "Application
ID" column, and find "{A4199E55-EBB9-49E5-AF1A-7A5408B2E206}", then:
