    How to Fix Event ID 10016 Windows 10 Pro Upgraded from Home

    The event information is
    Log Name: System
    Source: Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM
    Date: 12/22/2015 7:19:48 PM
    Event ID: 10016
    Task Category: None
    Level: Error
    Keywords: Classic
    User: SYSTEM
    Computer: Larry-Dell01
    The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    and APPID
    to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) 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.
