Applying Excel 2016 patches resets Component Services DCOM Config Security Access Permission RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I noticed that whenever some patches related to Excel 2016 is installed, the component services security access permission gets reset. Did anyone happen to face this issue?

    Under [Component Services] -> [Computers] -> [My Computer] -> [DCOM Config] -> [Microsoft Excel Application] -> right mouse click [Properties] -> [Security] tab -> [Access Permissions] -> [Customize] -> [Edit], I grant the account NETWORK SERVICE with the [Local Access] rights. 

    I managed to find an exact similar case but it was for SQL SSIS services instead.

    More info here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/help/2000474/dcom-permissions-for-ssis-service-are-reset-after-applying-a-service-p

    Wondering if this is a bug and possible to get a fix for this.

    Thank you,

  • I have noticed the same issue occurring on a Windows 2012 R2 environment running Excel 2013.  It only appears to reset Access Permissions.
