Com+ System Application Service won't start RRS feed

  • Question

  • **Edit** This is Windows 2008 R2

    I'm not exactly sure at which point this service started failing but I just installed software that relies on it which won't run.

    When I try to start the COM+ system service I get Error 1053 The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

    When entering the Component services application I can see a red arrow on "My Computer". When descending into the COM+ Applications screen I receive error: 80040154 - Class not registered.

    It states that the event log may contain additional information but unfortunately it does not.

    Can someone please advise how to debug this information. Is there some way to get more information reported as to which Application or Class file may be causing this issue?

  • My first step will be to uninstall the new software you installed. It seem it badly registred a com class. If lucky it will remove it.

    Unfortunately this did not help. I did have to do a manual uninstall of VMWare tools a couple of days ago. I'm sure I didn't remove any important registry entries. Is there any way to check this?

  • Microsoft there seems to be a serious lack of support for this issue on Windows 2008 R2. I have read a number of reports on the net about it and no one seems to be able to find troubleshooting tips. Can someone please advise how I can start on this?
