  • Run regedit.exe as administrator.
    Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Classes \ Wow6432Node \ AppID \ {B292921D-AF50-400c-9B75-0C57A7F29BA1}
    Open the window permits for this branch.
    Do the Administrators group the owner of this branch
    After that, give the Administrators group full access
    Restart dcomcnfg.exe as administrator
    Now you can change the properties of the DCOM application

  • I am having this same issue with pstools. The service won't launch and I get these dcom errors in the event log.

    So how in heaven's name do these pemissions get altered?? No one has Admin access to this computer besides myself. Almost all my other computers do not have a problem with pstools, but this one and a couple others do (out of about 400 computers), and although I cannot say for sure, I don't think it has always had problems!

    Obviously, how it goes wrong is a rhetorical question. Perhaps a better one is, is there a repair utility that simply goes through DCOM and fixes all the permissions?

  • The steps below is what worked for me. George had already stated most of this in this thread already but I figured I'd expand on it for clarity.


    1. Open regedit

    2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppID\{B292921D-AF50-400c-9B75-0C57A7F29BA1}


    3. Right click the {B292921D-AF50-400c-9B75-0C57A7F29BA1} folder and select "Permissions"


    4. Click Advanced


    5. Click the "Owner" tab


    6. Change owner to the local "Administrators" group and click OK.


    7. Grant the local "Administrators" group Full Control over the {B292921D-AF50-400c-9B75-0C57A7F29BA1} key and click OK.


    8. Launch “Component Services” under Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools


    9. Navigate to Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer -> DCOM Config


    10. Right-click the "NAP Agent Service" and select properties.


    11. Click the security tab


    12. Click the "Edit..." button under the "Launch and Activation Permissions"


    13. Highlight the "SYSTEM" user. Grant the user "Local Launch" permission.


    14. Click OK and exit out of Component Services and regedit.

  • Is that question somehow related to ConfigMgr or to the DCOM issues on Server 2008 mentioned in this thread?

  • I see a lot of ways on how to get rid of the error message, but not on which way is the "right" choice. Also, a lot of attempts for an explanation can be read, but not the whole story. I have written an article about this error message, with the full story of what and why and which possible solutions there are and which one is the best for you. It's a long article with a lot of side notes, but I think you need at least a little bit of background information to know what you're talking about and what you're doing. Here it is:

    I hope it helps!
