    DCOMcnfg error


    When invoking dcomcnfg from the elevated command prompt on a Win10 Pro Desktop PC, the COMPUTERS folder appears but when clicked the center panel is blank. The Windows 10 HOME Laptop brings up the My Computer icon in the central area, just as the Desktop has in the past on many occasions.

    The tree at the left does list MY COMPUTER but when it is right-clicked|Refresh All Components or when clicking on COM+ Applications folder under My Computer, it throws an error. Thus, the five folders that are seen on the Laptop under COM+ Applications are not accessible on the Desktop PC: COM Explorer, COM+QC, COM+Utilities, COM+Utilities(32-bit), System Application. Items in the DCom config folder are available.

    "8004E00F com+ was unable to talk to the MS Distributed Transaction Coordinator" (which IS running in Services). There are no Event Viewer errors.

    On the Desktop PC with the error, there are three folders under My Computer: COM+ Applications, DCom Config and Distributed Transaction Coordinator. On the Laptop, where there is no error, there is an additional Running Processes folder.

    On the My Computer PROPERTIES page the Options and Default Protocols tabs are missing.

    Several system images were restored - without allowing updates, to be sure that they aren't the cause - all the way back to one made just after 1903 was installed. Even tried an 1809 image. Same behavior. Nothing has changed in BIOS, but could it be a setting there? Z390 Asus motherboard.

    Many forum-posted remedies for the error have been tried, though they seem to address a failure to bring up dcomcnfg at all, which is not the case here. None succeeds. SFC and DISM are clean.

    So the issue is with Com+ Applications. Any hints at what's going on??

    I don't seem to get the same error on my system. But I do get a request to Record it. See below

    If I say NO I then get list of components. See Below

    I'm on 1903 @ 18362.295.

    Don't know if this helps.

    DCOMcnfg error


    No warning now, but have seen similar in the past, and responded with YES.

    The DCom config list does appear here, but the Running Processes folder does not.

    Even tested in Safe Mode. Same issue.
