    Windows 8.1


    Thanks for the helpful guide clubert, it was very helpful in fixing the log entry on one Windows 8.1 installation but I'm unable to complete the steps on another installation as WPN Srumon Server doesn't appear in the dcom config window.

    I've changed ownership of the registry key to administrators and applied full control in permissions.

    Any suggestions please?

    Tried sfc /scannow but no change. Still no WPN Srumon Server in dcom config.

    Not sure what to try next....repair install?

    If you go to Administrative Tools and into Component Services and manually search for WPN Srumon Server is it no longer there in the list?

    How does one search in the Component Services?

    Search for it via the start menu (I use start8 with my Windows 8.1) or go into control panel (view by small icons) and click Administrative Tools then click Component Services - My Computer - DCOM Config then scroll down the bottom of the list to find WPN Srumon.

    I thought you were implying that the Component Services snap-in had a search function.

    I'm aware on how to start to snap in from the command line but WPN Srumon Server was not present in the list of applications.

    Ran out of options so decided to reinstall...WPN Srumon Server is there now so problem solved Just a shame that it took such a drastic measure to resolve.

    Thanks for the replies.

    This is absolutely bizarre?!?

    I started to notice the same error popping up in the event log again so I double checked the permissions on the registry key. They were still good so I thought I'd check the permissions on WPN Srumon Server in dcom config and low and behold, it's disappeared again!!

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what could cause this please?

    ...and again. Fresh installation of Windows 8.1. Thought I'd install a few apps at a time and reboot and test whether WPN Srumon Server is still present. After installing, I changed permissions of the registry key then edited permissions of WPN Srumon Server in dcomcnfg.

    Installed some drivers, rebooted - fine.
    Installed my apps in batches and after completing - fine.
    Ran Windows Updates and WPN Srumon Server is gone from dcom config after rebooting.
