    Should we give ownership back to TrustedInstaller once we've rebooted?

    windows 8.1


    I have had this issue many times and resolved it just the way the tutorial shows. However, I have installed Windows 8.1 RTM recently and can no longer edit the DCOM launch permissions, even after taking ownership of the DCOM registry entry and changing administrators to full control.

    The DCOM setting page, in component services manager, for the object, is still greyed out. The DCOM object is "Immersive shell" and every boot I get the launch permissions error.

    Anyone found the trick to editing DCOM launch permissions in 8.1?

    Thanks

    I have a problem with Immersive shell too. All solutions don't work for me. I changed permission Immersive shell DCOM but error 10016 still in event viewer.

    The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239}
    and APPID
    {316CDED5-E4AE-4B15-9113-7055D84DCC97}

    Please help

    W.8.1 Pro Update 1


    Need a little more help with making the 10060 error go away.

    Server application with CLSID
    {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239}
    and APPID
    {316CDED5-E4AE-4B15-9113-7055D84DCC97}

    I followed the guide and everything goes OK until I get to step 12. At that point everything on the WPN Srumon Server Properties/Security dialog box is Grayed out. I can't Edit the Launch and Activate Permissions. I running the W8.1 upgrade. Based on other entries it appears most people have success with this fix. Any idea on what I may be doing wrong or do I need to do something a little different for my particular APPID entry? I know this is relatively minor problem and does not seem to effect Windows 8.1 adversely but it is becoming personal! I would really appreciate some help.

    Hi Ken.

    Don't edit the "WPN Srumon Server Properties/Security dialog box".
    The above fix on page one is for a different permission fault (although the fix method is the same). That is why it remains greyed out to you. It is the "Immersive Shell" you should be editing.

    Follow these instructions exactly and let me know how you do. It should 100% work.

    1. Open Regedit.
    2. Go to HKEY_Classes_Root\CLSID\*CLSID*.
    Note: *CLSID* stand for the ID that appears in your event viewer error. In your case, it's {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239}.
    3. Right click on it then select permission.
    4. Click Advance and change the owner to Administrators. Also click the box that will appear below the owner line.
    5. Apply full control.
    6. Close the tab then go to HKEY_LocalMachine\Software\Classes\AppID\*APPID*.
    Note: *AppID* is the ID that appears in your event viewer. In your case it's {316CDED5-E4AE-4B15-9113-7055D84DCC97}.
    7. Right click on it then select permission.
    8. Click Advance and change the owner to Administrators.
    9. Click the box that will appear below the owner line.
    10. Click Apply and grant full control to Administrators.
    11. Close all tabs and go to Administrative tool.
    12. Open component services.
    13. Click Computer, click my computer, then click DCOM.
    14. Look for the corresponding service "Immersive Shell" Right click and click properties.
    15. Click security tab then click Customize in the Launch and Activation permissions section. Click Edit. Click Add. Add Local Service. Then apply.
    16. Tick the Local Activation box.

    Reboot.

    Sayjimwoo,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, that fixed the error! Just curious, what triggered you to know that I had to go to "Immersive Shell" to fix the error?

    Nice one, glad you got it sorted

    In answer to your question, If you go back to page one at the start of this thread, The Event error in question was exactly the same as yours but it was a different CLSID {7022A3B3-D004-4F52-AF11-E9E987FEE25F} and a different APPID {ADA41B3C-C6FD-4A08-8CC1-D6EFDE67BE7D}
    To fix this it required you to edit the "WPN Srumon Server Properties".

    Because your CLSID was {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239} and the APPID was {316CDED5-E4AE-4B15-9113-7055D84DCC97} that required you to edit the "Immersive Shell" a completely different service, that's why "WPN Srumon Server Properties" was always greyed out to you.

    This is how I found the correct service -

    When you are in the registry, editing both the CLSID and APPID permissions, if you look at the data on the top right hand side of the registry it tells you the service name - "Immersive Shell". VOILA - now you know what to edit in Component Services

    Nearly everyone on the planet is getting your error with Windows 8.1 Microsoft will probably fix it at some point if people make enough noise about it lol.

    Oh and if for any reason you need to revert CLSID and APPID permissions back to Trusted installer you just change it from your name to NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller just like you did in the above instructions (4. and 8.)
    Then "Immersive Shell" will be greyed out and back to default settings.

    Sorry if I babbled on a bit much, but there you go lol.

    12. Click the "Security" tab, and click the "Edit" button in the "Launch and Activation Permissions" section:

    Cluberti - love the clear graphical instructions!
    I get a very similar error message to donaldormond here:
    The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239}
    and APPID
    {316CDED5-E4AE-4B15-9113-7055D84DCC97}
    to the user NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID (S-1-5-19) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

    I (foolishly?) followed your step by step instructions and all went well until Step12. The "Edit" buttons are greyed out and none of the "Use Default" or "Customize" buttons are selected - nor can I select them. I retraced my steps and all's good (i.e. machine still working as well as ever). Is there a simple fix you might be able to suggest?
