Sounds like DCOM is disabled. Mine sure is and on purpose too. ;-)

Enable DCOM

Edit the Registry
1. Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE
3. Change the EnableDCOM string value to Y to enable. Or Change the
EnableDCOM string value to N to disable.
4. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

Use DCOMCNFG.EXE
1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.
2. If you are running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, perform these
additional steps:
a. Click the Component Services node under Console Root.
b. Open the Computers folder.
c. For the local computer, right-click My Computer, and then click
Properties.
d. For a remote computer, right-click Computers folder, point to New,
and then click Computer.
e. Type the computer name.
f. Right-click the computer name, and then click Properties.

3. Click the Default Properties tab.
4. Click to select the Enable Distributed COM on this Computer check box.
5. If you want to set more properties for the computer, click Apply to
enable (or disable) DCOM. Otherwise, click OK to apply the changes and
quit Dcomcnfg.exe.
6. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

The following registry string value is used to enable or disable DCOM on all
operating systems:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE\EnableDCOM

If you change this value to Y, you enable DCOM after you restart the
operating system.

If you change this value to N, you disable DCOM after you restart the
operating system.

Went through the instructions, below for enabling DCOM , found it to be
already enabled, I therefore disable and re-boot the machine.
However, upon trying to carry out the second group of instructions, as soon
as I attempted to open the "Computers folder", the window disappears and I
have to run "DCOMCNFG.EXE", again but with the same results, I have tried
this operation looged on as administrator, but with the same results, I
cannot open the computers Folder.
I have reset the DCOM back to enabled and retried your instructions but
still with the same result.

Thanks

Nick,

Some things to try.

Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click COM+ System Application |

Is it started? If not click the Start button.
Is it set to Automatic? If not set to Automatic. Click Apply.
You may need to click the Start button again if it was Disabled.

Uninstall and reinstall COM+, instructions here...

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315296

Register the following *.dll files.
Start | Run | Type or paste the following one at a time and hit your Enter
key. You should see a message telling if they registered or not.

regsvr32 comuid.dll

regsvr32 COMRes.dll

regsvr32 Comsvcs.dll

I have had some luck and some, not so.
Carried out the Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click COM+ System Application |
It comes up with an ERROR,

I went through the "How to clean up a damaged COM+ catalog. with some
varying results.
Had to go into "Safe Mode", to carry out the process, during the process
"ADD/Remove Windows Components", i received and error, shown below.

I ran the rmdir /s Resgistration command, in safe mode had no choice, access

Went through the instructions, below for enabling DCOM , found it to
be already enabled, I therefore disable and re-boot the machine.
However, upon trying to carry out the second group of instructions,
as soon as I attempted to open the "Computers folder", the window
disappears and I have to run "DCOMCNFG.EXE", again but with the same
results, I have tried this operation looged on as administrator, but
with the same results, I cannot open the computers Folder.
I have reset the DCOM back to enabled and retried your instructions
but still with the same result.

Thanks

Sounds like DCOM is disabled. Mine sure is and on purpose too. ;-)

Enable DCOM

Edit the Registry
1. Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE
3. Change the EnableDCOM string value to Y to enable. Or Change the
EnableDCOM string value to N to disable.
4. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

Use DCOMCNFG.EXE
1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.
2. If you are running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, perform
these additional steps:
a. Click the Component Services node under Console Root.
b. Open the Computers folder.
c. For the local computer, right-click My Computer, and then
click Properties.
d. For a remote computer, right-click Computers folder, point
to New, and then click Computer.
e. Type the computer name.
f. Right-click the computer name, and then click Properties.

3. Click the Default Properties tab.
4. Click to select the Enable Distributed COM on this Computer check
box.
5. If you want to set more properties for the computer, click Apply
to enable (or disable) DCOM. Otherwise, click OK to apply the
changes and quit Dcomcnfg.exe.
6. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

The following registry string value is used to enable or disable
DCOM on all operating systems:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE\EnableDCOM

If you change this value to Y, you enable DCOM after you restart the
operating system.

If you change this value to N, you disable DCOM after you restart the
operating system.

I have had some luck and some, not so.
Carried out the Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click COM+ System Application |
It comes up with an ERROR,
COM+ systems application Service. Error - 1053 Did not respond to the start.

I went through the "How to clean up a damaged COM+ catalog. with some
varying results.
Had to go into "Safe Mode", to carry out the process, during the process
"ADD/Remove Windows Components", i received and error, shown below.

Enable DCOM

Edit the Registry
1. Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE

EnableDCOM string value to N to disable.
4. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

Use DCOMCNFG.EXE
1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.

these additional steps:
a. Click the Component Services node under Console Root.
b. Open the Computers folder.
c. For the local computer, right-click My Computer, and then

5. If you want to set more properties for the computer, click Apply
to enable (or disable) DCOM. Otherwise, click OK to apply the

6. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

The following registry string value is used to enable or disable
DCOM on all operating systems:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE\EnableDCOM

If you change this value to Y, you enable DCOM after you restart the
operating system.

If you change this value to N, you disable DCOM after you restart the
operating system.

If I go into Control Panel/ Add or remove, select the Add/Remove
Windows Components, and run the add components, I obtain the
following error.

Sub-component COM+ raised an exception while processing the
OC_COMPLETE_INSTALLATION setup message.

I do not know if this has any bearing on the other problems I am
experiencing, but any help herer would be most appreciated.

I have had some luck and some, not so.
Carried out the Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click COM+ System Application |
It comes up with an ERROR,
COM+ systems application Service. Error - 1053 Did not respond to
the start.

I went through the "How to clean up a damaged COM+ catalog. with some
varying results.
Had to go into "Safe Mode", to carry out the process, during the
process "ADD/Remove Windows Components", i received and error, shown
below.

COM+ Setup Error

I ran the rmdir /s Resgistration command, in safe mode had no

yes(Y), very little else happened, then returned to the C prompt. So
I assume this part is OK.

The "state of play", is now I am able to go into component services,
My computer, then there are three sub-trees, COM+ Applications(Comes

Went through the instructions, below for enabling DCOM , found it
to be already enabled, I therefore disable and re-boot the machine.
However, upon trying to carry out the second group of instructions,
as soon as I attempted to open the "Computers folder", the window
disappears and I have to run "DCOMCNFG.EXE", again but with the
same results, I have tried this operation looged on as
administrator, but with the same results, I cannot open the
computers Folder.
I have reset the DCOM back to enabled and retried your instructions
but still with the same result.

Thanks

Nick

:

Nick.

Sounds like DCOM is disabled. Mine sure is and on purpose too.
;-)

Enable DCOM

Edit the Registry
1. Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE
3. Change the EnableDCOM string value to Y to enable. Or Change
the EnableDCOM string value to N to disable.
4. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

Use DCOMCNFG.EXE
1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.
2. If you are running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, perform
these additional steps:
a. Click the Component Services node under Console Root.
b. Open the Computers folder.
c. For the local computer, right-click My Computer, and then
click Properties.
d. For a remote computer, right-click Computers folder, point
to New, and then click Computer.
e. Type the computer name.
f. Right-click the computer name, and then click Properties.

3. Click the Default Properties tab.
4. Click to select the Enable Distributed COM on this Computer
check box.
5. If you want to set more properties for the computer, click
Apply to enable (or disable) DCOM. Otherwise, click OK to
apply the changes and quit Dcomcnfg.exe.
6. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

The following registry string value is used to enable or disable
DCOM on all operating systems:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE\EnableDCOM

If you change this value to Y, you enable DCOM after you restart
the operating system.

If you change this value to N, you disable DCOM after you restart
the operating system.

Nick,

Do you actually need DCOM for anything? I sure don't.

Is there anything in C:\Program Files\ComPlus Applications ??

DCOM Windows XP Do You Need It?
[[Virtually no-one needs it, wants it or uses it! ]]
http://www.updatexp.com/dcom-windows-xp.html

[[COM+ System Application
You will receive, in the Event Log, an entry from "DCOM" complaining about
not having this service running if disabled. I am unaware of any application
that uses COM+, but if set to manual, many services report to it, so it will
start anyway. For the fun of it:

"C:\Program Files\ComPlus Applications"

On your system, see if you have any installed "COM+" Applications. If not,
you can probably disable this service with no side effects (besides the
Event Log complaining upon reboots). This service is required for System
Event Notification.

Default XP Home: Manual
Default XP Pro: Manual
Safe Setting: Manual]]
http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/service411.htm#COM+_System_Application

COM+ System Application
[[Basically, this is the application that controls COM+ Event System. One of
the support files that you'll probably never have any use for, but if you
disable it, the warning notices you receive are worse than leaving it
enabled. Disabling this service will generate Event Log entries noting it
isn't running. An annoyance, but not harmful.
The Manual setting avoids the Event Log entries.]]
http://www.theeldergeek.com/com+_system_application.htm

[[System Event Notification
Used in conjunction with COM+ Event System, this service notifies particular
services when system events, such as logon and power events occur. I doubt
the average user really cares about this. I have also not seen any
applications that use this. You will receive, in the Event Log, an entry
complaining about not having this service running if disabled. I have yet to
find a side effect, though. For a "safe" configuration, leave this service
on automatic.

Default XP Home: Automatic
Default XP Pro: Automatic
Safe Setting: Automatic]]

- Then do the add/remove windows components steps again. This will remove

Enable DCOM

Edit the Registry
1. Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE
3. Change the EnableDCOM string value to Y to enable. Or Change
the EnableDCOM string value to N to disable.
4. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

Use DCOMCNFG.EXE
1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.
2. If you are running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, perform
these additional steps:
a. Click the Component Services node under Console Root.
b. Open the Computers folder.
c. For the local computer, right-click My Computer, and then
click Properties.

6. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

The following registry string value is used to enable or disable
DCOM on all operating systems:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE\EnableDCOM

If you change this value to Y, you enable DCOM after you restart
the operating system.

If you change this value to N, you disable DCOM after you restart

After reading your last email, , decided there is no reason run DCOM,
nothing in the \Program Files\ComPlus Applications, I changed the setting in
the Register (n) accordingly.
I came across a problem whilst in the Component Sevices, as suggested in:
http://www.updatexp.com/dcom-windows-xp.html, was unable to right click on
"My Computer" for Properties. I do not know if this has any significants, but
there is a small "Red Arrow" pointing down, this may just be to indicate the
sub-tree.

COM+ Setup Error:
Went through the procedure for as shown below, but I am still observing the
same problem as before.
Sub-component COM+ raised an exception while processing the
OC_COMPLETE_INSTALLATION setup message.
d:\nt\com\com1x\src\complussetup\comsetup\ccompluscore.cpp (line 565) Error
Code = 0x80040206 An unexpected internal error was detectedThe COM+ event
classes could not be registered.

Other problems still apparent are:
"Windows Installer" still malfunctioning....
"Norton Antivirus" problem with LiveUpdate. "LU1803", considered
re-installing, but without the "Windows Installers" the operation cannot be
carried out.
"WORD" .. message appears "This document could not be registered. It will
not be possible to create links from other documents to this document.
Second message appears. "This document could not be registered. It will not
be possible to create links from the other documents to this document.
(C:\...\Startup\jawsPDFCreateInit.dot), same message when opening any word
document.
Just to clarify I carried out the instructions as shown here:

Do the following:
open the command prompt
change the directory to \windows\system32
enter the following command lines
regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
Then do the add/remove windows components steps again. This will remove
the error

But had no effect.

Thanks

Nick

Nick,

Do you actually need DCOM for anything? I sure don't.

Is there anything in C:\Program Files\ComPlus Applications ??

DCOM Windows XP Do You Need It?
[[Virtually no-one needs it, wants it or uses it! ]]
http://www.updatexp.com/dcom-windows-xp.html

[[COM+ System Application
You will receive, in the Event Log, an entry from "DCOM" complaining about
not having this service running if disabled. I am unaware of any application
that uses COM+, but if set to manual, many services report to it, so it will
start anyway. For the fun of it:

"C:\Program Files\ComPlus Applications"

On your system, see if you have any installed "COM+" Applications. If not,
you can probably disable this service with no side effects (besides the
Event Log complaining upon reboots). This service is required for System
Event Notification.

COM+ System Application
[[Basically, this is the application that controls COM+ Event System. One of
the support files that you'll probably never have any use for, but if you
disable it, the warning notices you receive are worse than leaving it
enabled. Disabling this service will generate Event Log entries noting it
isn't running. An annoyance, but not harmful.
The Manual setting avoids the Event Log entries.]]

[[System Event Notification
Used in conjunction with COM+ Event System, this service notifies particular
services when system events, such as logon and power events occur. I doubt
the average user really cares about this. I have also not seen any
applications that use this. You will receive, in the Event Log, an entry
complaining about not having this service running if disabled. I have yet to
find a side effect, though. For a "safe" configuration, leave this service
on automatic.

I have had some luck and some, not so.
Carried out the Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click COM+ System Application |
It comes up with an ERROR,
COM+ systems application Service. Error - 1053 Did not respond to the

I went through the "How to clean up a damaged COM+ catalog. with some
varying results.
Had to go into "Safe Mode", to carry out the process, during the
process "ADD/Remove Windows Components", i received and error, shown
below.

part is OK.

Went through the instructions, below for enabling DCOM , found it to
be already enabled, I therefore disable and re-boot the machine.
However, upon trying to carry out the second group of instructions,
as soon as I attempted to open the "Computers folder", the window
disappears and I have to run "DCOMCNFG.EXE", again but with the same
results, I have tried this operation looged on as administrator, but
with the same results, I cannot open the computers Folder.
I have reset the DCOM back to enabled and retried your instructions
but still with the same result.

Thanks

Nick

:

Nick.

Sounds like DCOM is disabled. Mine sure is and on purpose too.
;-)

Enable DCOM

Edit the Registry
1. Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE
3. Change the EnableDCOM string value to Y to enable. Or Change
the EnableDCOM string value to N to disable.
4. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

Use DCOMCNFG.EXE
1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.
2. If you are running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, perform
these additional steps:
a. Click the Component Services node under Console Root.
b. Open the Computers folder.
c. For the local computer, right-click My Computer, and then
click Properties.
d. For a remote computer, right-click Computers folder, point
to New, and then click Computer.
e. Type the computer name.
f. Right-click the computer name, and then click Properties.

3. Click the Default Properties tab.
4. Click to select the Enable Distributed COM on this Computer
check box.
5. If you want to set more properties for the computer, click Apply
to enable (or disable) DCOM. Otherwise, click OK to apply the
changes and quit Dcomcnfg.exe.
6. Restart the operating system for the changes to take effect.

The following registry string value is used to enable or disable
DCOM on all operating systems:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE\EnableDCOM

If you change this value to Y, you enable DCOM after you restart
the operating system.

If you change this value to N, you disable DCOM after you restart
the operating system.

If you right click on the Warning and select Properties then you

Wes.

Well, went through the processes yesterday and last night, and carried out
all the steps covered in:
"Workaround for Symantec/Windows Installer Program problems on XP SP2"

The outcome was very little in respect of resolving the problem of Symantec
and the Widows Installer, I deleted so I believe, everything in connection
with Norton Antivirus and the WMI which symantec provides as an
update.....however as far as XP is concerned, Norton antivirus is installed,
and apparently running well, although I have deleted the whole package, I
believe.
Unfortunately during this process I must have changed a few things or
deleted a few things possibly from the register, which has caused several
problems to appear.
1, the RPC server does not appear to be running, If I try to install
anything now, I obtain a message:
RunDll32 c:\program~1\Common~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup
"C:\Program files\ Installshield\ Installation
Information\{748F-4870~1}\Setup.exe" --MAIN -s - f2" c:\setup.log". An
installable Virtual Device Driver failed Dll initialization, Choose 'Close'
to terminate the application. If you attempt to run setup.exe from the
sub-directory, the following notice appears. The InstallShield Engine
(iKernel.exe) could not be launch. The RPC server is unavailable.
2, Should i try to open up help or to do a search, the left hand
window(Search Companion) remains blank.
3, From the 'Start' menu, the Help and Support, does not work when selected.
4, I saved a backup of the whole registry, before attempting any editing,
but I am having problems importing it back in, The Registry Editor window
appears with the following text.
Cannot inport C:\check\ Regbackup29032005.reg: Not all data was successfully
written to the register. Some keys are open by the systems or other process.
I have tried, importing in the "safe Mode" level, but exactly the same
result appears.

Note. One thing I have found, was I had another Anitvirus software
installed a while back, "AVG7", this I deleted/removed sometime ago however,
I have found the entry below:
\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall
\Directories
\Features
\TextCache.
I have tried to remove the above but with no success, both in normal mode
and Safe Mode I have checked to see if anything else, program or service may
still be running. An error Deleting Key Message appears "Cannot delete
AVG7Uninstall: Error while deleting key".

5. Carried out the instruction for removing the "normal.dot" file, however I
am stil l observing the same problem or messages previously.

At the moment, I am still running XP, with resources, and I am still able to
connect to the Internet, I have been able to install Mozilla, which allows me
to work with Outlook express. Connection is through a router, I have disabled
"Zone Alarm" firewall, temporarily since the article mentioned a problem with
this application and XP +SP2.

I would like to install some antivirus, I cannot install AVG7, because it
believes it he full application is already installed.

Any help would be on the above would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks


Nick

http://www.updatexp.com/dcom-windows-xp.html

[[COM+ System Application
You will receive, in the Event Log, an entry from "DCOM" complaining
about not having this service running if disabled. I am unaware of
any application that uses COM+, but if set to manual, many services
report to it, so it will start anyway. For the fun of it:

"C:\Program Files\ComPlus Applications"

On your system, see if you have any installed "COM+" Applications.
If not, you can probably disable this service with no side effects
(besides the Event Log complaining upon reboots). This service is
required for System Event Notification.

COM+ System Application
[[Basically, this is the application that controls COM+ Event
System. One of the support files that you'll probably never have any
use for, but if you disable it, the warning notices you receive are
worse than leaving it enabled. Disabling this service will generate
Event Log entries noting it isn't running. An annoyance, but not
harmful.
The Manual setting avoids the Event Log entries.]]

[[System Event Notification
Used in conjunction with COM+ Event System, this service notifies
particular services when system events, such as logon and power
events occur. I doubt the average user really cares about this. I
have also not seen any applications that use this. You will receive,
in the Event Log, an entry complaining about not having this service
running if disabled. I have yet to find a side effect, though. For a
"safe" configuration, leave this service on automatic.

Wes.

If you are still following this thread, I have been able to uninstall Norton
completely, and using another antivirus product, which appears to be running
quite well. However, I still have problems with XP, previously explained
before.

For the moment I am going to re-install, XP, onto another area of the disk,
and make it the active directory, I will not delete the original, since I
will look at the problems in the future... Just as well this isn't for
business use.

Thanks for your help.

Well, went through the processes yesterday and last night, and carried out
all the steps covered in:
"Workaround for Symantec/Windows Installer Program problems on XP SP2"

The outcome was very little in respect of resolving the problem of Symantec
and the Widows Installer, I deleted so I believe, everything in connection
with Norton Antivirus and the WMI which symantec provides as an
update.....however as far as XP is concerned, Norton antivirus is installed,
and apparently running well, although I have deleted the whole package, I
believe.
Unfortunately during this process I must have changed a few things or
deleted a few things possibly from the register, which has caused several
problems to appear.
1, the RPC server does not appear to be running, If I try to install
anything now, I obtain a message:
RunDll32 c:\program~1\Common~1\engine\6\INTEL3~1\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup
"C:\Program files\ Installshield\ Installation
Information\{748F-4870~1}\Setup.exe" --MAIN -s - f2" c:\setup.log". An
installable Virtual Device Driver failed Dll initialization, Choose 'Close'
to terminate the application. If you attempt to run setup.exe from the
sub-directory, the following notice appears. The InstallShield Engine
(iKernel.exe) could not be launch. The RPC server is unavailable.
2, Should i try to open up help or to do a search, the left hand
window(Search Companion) remains blank.
3, From the 'Start' menu, the Help and Support, does not work when selected.
4, I saved a backup of the whole registry, before attempting any editing,
but I am having problems importing it back in, The Registry Editor window
appears with the following text.
Cannot inport C:\check\ Regbackup29032005.reg: Not all data was successfully
written to the register. Some keys are open by the systems or other process.
I have tried, importing in the "safe Mode" level, but exactly the same
result appears.

Note. One thing I have found, was I had another Anitvirus software
installed a while back, "AVG7", this I deleted/removed sometime ago however,
I have found the entry below:
\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall
\Directories
\Features
\TextCache.
I have tried to remove the above but with no success, both in normal mode
and Safe Mode I have checked to see if anything else, program or service may
still be running. An error Deleting Key Message appears "Cannot delete
AVG7Uninstall: Error while deleting key".

5. Carried out the instruction for removing the "normal.dot" file, however I
am stil l observing the same problem or messages previously.

At the moment, I am still running XP, with resources, and I am still able to
connect to the Internet, I have been able to install Mozilla, which allows me
to work with Outlook express. Connection is through a router, I have disabled
"Zone Alarm" firewall, temporarily since the article mentioned a problem with
this application and XP +SP2.

I would like to install some antivirus, I cannot install AVG7, because it
believes it he full application is already installed.

Any help would be on the above would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks


Nick

Nick,

Component Services, don't worry about it. DCOM was screwed already.

Workaround for Symantec/Windows Installer Program problems on XP SP2
http://www.networksecurityarchive.org/html/NTBugtraq/2004-12/msg00002.html

Error: "LU1803: LiveUpdate failed while getting your updates" or "LiveUpdate
had an internal error while getting your updates"
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/sharedtech.nsf/pfdocs/2002071909270613

For Word problem, do a Search for a file called Normal.dot. Delete it.
Word will create new file when you next start Word.

After reading your last email, , decided there is no reason run DCOM,
nothing in the \Program Files\ComPlus Applications, I changed the
setting in the Register (n) accordingly.
I came across a problem whilst in the Component Sevices, as
suggested in: http://www.updatexp.com/dcom-windows-xp.html, was
unable to right click on "My Computer" for Properties. I do not know
if this has any significants, but there is a small "Red Arrow"
pointing down, this may just be to indicate the sub-tree.

COM+ Setup Error:
Went through the procedure for as shown below, but I am still
observing the same problem as before.
Sub-component COM+ raised an exception while processing the
OC_COMPLETE_INSTALLATION setup message.
d:\nt\com\com1x\src\complussetup\comsetup\ccompluscore.cpp (line 565)
Error Code = 0x80040206 An unexpected internal error was detectedThe
COM+ event classes could not be registered.

Other problems still apparent are:
"Windows Installer" still malfunctioning....
"Norton Antivirus" problem with LiveUpdate. "LU1803", considered
re-installing, but without the "Windows Installers" the operation
cannot be carried out.
"WORD" .. message appears "This document could not be registered. It
will not be possible to create links from other documents to this
document. Second message appears. "This document could not be
registered. It will not be possible to create links from the other
documents to this document. (C:\...\Startup\jawsPDFCreateInit.dot),
same message when opening any word document.
Just to clarify I carried out the instructions as shown here:

Do the following:
open the command prompt
change the directory to \windows\system32
enter the following command lines
regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
Then do the add/remove windows components steps again. This will
remove
the error

But had no effect.

Thanks

Nick,

Do you actually need DCOM for anything? I sure don't.

Is there anything in C:\Program Files\ComPlus Applications ??
