    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?
    Hi Teaboy

    The error you are getting is slightly different to the one on the first page that is why it is greyed out. Read my last two posts and you will have your error fixed in no time

    Fixed! - Thank you SayJimWoo


    Worked a treat! Thank you so much. I'm in awe of you guys who know the answers to these issues - I wouldn't have a clue WHERE to start.

    After carrying out your instructions and rebooting I had about 6 or 7 similar but different to the original one.
    So I rebooted again. This time only 1 error - different to the original and much less scary looking.

    After the 3rd reboot - no errors.

    Just one comment on your instructions: After step 14 I right-clicked and selected 'properties'. I wonder if you accidently omitted this little step, because I notice your instructions jump from 14 to 16

    Also, in step 16 I interpreted your instruction as "Click security tab then click Customise in the Launch and Activation permissions section. Click Edit. Click Add. In the "Enter the object names to select" box type "Local Service". Click OK.

    This seemed to work - can you confirm that my interpretation is correct?
    Thanks

    Glad you sorted it. Don't worry about me missing out an instruction, I obviously just can't count lol. You did it all correctly. I will edit the post thanks for spotting it.


    EDIT. The post should be correct now, I must have deleted a step by mistake. Thanks again for spotting it.

    I have been having exactly the same issue with a bunch of new Windows 8.1 machines. I tried the solution above, but at point 12 the options were all greyed out. I am a member of the local administrators group, so should have the appropriate permissions. What am I missing?

    Thanks,

    Ivan

    Hi Ivan, if you followed the illustrated directions on page ONE of this thread, that is for a different error to the one I was facing so the instructions are slightly different although the fix method is the same. Is your error the same as mine and are you seeing these values in the event viewer?

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

    If so, then if you followed my fix to the letter (got all the correct permissions) the "Immersive Shell" options in component services shouldn't be greyed out.

    Make sure when you are in the DCOM config that you pick "Immersive Shell"

    Thanks so much: yes, that was the error, and Immersive Shell permissions were the ones that needed to be changed. Errors now gone, computer back to running properly again.
    Fantastic.

    Cluberti, All is well until one must "type in the user name from your error dialog *exactly* as it appears in the error dialog from the event viewer." Here is the event viewer readout...

    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.

    -0-
    As you can see, there's no name to type. And no portion of "NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID (S-1-5-19)" is accepted.
    Thoughts?
