    Hi,

    Event Error:

    Source: DCOM Event ID:10002
    "Access denied attempting to launch a DCOM Server. The Server is: {00020906-0000-0000-c000-000000000046}
    The user is Unavailable/Unavailable, SID=Unavailable

    I have reinstalled Office 2K CD1 and CD2 as the server {00020906....0000046} refers to Word within the registry.

    Yet not resolution.

    I do not know much of DCOM services and any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks a mil. (y)

    Very simple and easy instructions:-

    Explanation
    A program, the Clsid displayed in the message, tried to start the DCOM server by using the DCOM infrastructure. Based on the security ID (SID), this user does not have the necessary permissions to start the DCOM server.


    User Action
    Verify that the user has the appropriate permissions to start the DCOM server.

    To assign permissions

    1. Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value
    HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32
    The clsid value is the information displayed in the message.
    2. In the right pane, double-click Default.
    The Edit String dialog box is displayed. Leave this dialog box open.
    3. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    4. Double-click Administrative Tools and then double-click Component Services.
    5. In the Component Services snap-in, navigate to Computers\My Computer\DCOM Config.
    6. In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name.
    7. Right-click the program name and then select Properties.
    8. On the Security tab, select Customize, and then click Edit.
    9. Add the user to the permissions list.

    Unfortunately I can't get further than step 5... :confused:

    I only have - COM+ Applications
    - Distributed Transaction Coordinator
    No DCOM Config .... :rolleyes: - (Windows 2000 Server)
