    Peace all,

    I am in a need to create a VB Script that can be run under XP and 2003 to configure the Identity information for COM+ and DCOM objects. These objects will be configured to use "This user" option in their Identity tabs.

    I tried using this script (found it somewhere) but it's not working (setting up user "test" as the credentials used for these objects):

    Dim appID
    appID = "{7B4E1F3C-A702-11D2-A336-00C04F7978E0}"
    Dim catalog, root
    Set catalog = CreateObject("COMAdmin.COMAdminCatalog")
    Set root = catalog.Connect("myhost")
    Dim appsCol
    Set appsCol = catalog.GetCollection("Applications")
    appsCol.PopulateByKey Array(appID)
    For Each obj in appsCol
      obj.Value("Identity") = "test"
      obj.Value("Password") = "test"
      Call appsCol.SaveChanges
    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
