    Hello Stuart,



    Error 0x80040154 is "Class not registered".  Architecturally, the FCS console calls into the MOM API to invoke the OnDemand scan of client machines.  These MOM APIs are implemented as COM components.


    Can you open the MOM Administration and Operators console on that Management server?

    Do you have the registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8FB7B313-C81A-11D2-8D40-0090270D2552} ?

  • Do I need to add that in my registry?


    If so, how do I do that? What do I add it as?


    Please help,

  • I had the exact same error:

    Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Mom.MomSdkException: Execution against the runtime failed. See inner exception for more details. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80080005): Retrieving the COM class factory for remote component with CLSID {8FB7B313-C81A-11D2-8D40-0090270D2552} from machine PARFCS01 failed due to the following error: 80080005.

    The setup bombs out.

    I got it to work by doing the following:

    Ensuring that the Service accounts that I use for the install meet the requirements of the software (2 server install), so they needed to be a local admin on the server that I ran the install on and a domain user.  I also had them in a service account group which denied them local logon rights.  I had to remove that restriction and it all worked fine.

    Unfortunately the install didn't clean up and would bomb out again at step 1 unless you clean it yourself.

    So keep the setup window open, make the account settings above. 
    Uninstall MOM
    Uninstall Forefront Security
    Manually delete the DB installed (OnePoint) from inside SQL

    Then go back one step on the install and try it again.  It completed successfully.

    Good Luck
