Windows 10: DCOM Configuration Warning Solved

    DCOM Configuration Warning


    I was fixing a DCOM error and while entering the DCOM Config in Component Services I encountered a "DCOM Configuration Warning" asking me if I would like to record an item.
    I clicked "Yes" without fully reading what it asked me to add. I doubt this will have any negative impact on my system however this made me wonder if there was some kind of log or logfile where I could see what item was recorded.

    Please excuse me if this is not the right place to post this thread.

    This exact thing happened to me today, would like to know what it means as well.

    Pretty sure it's harmless tbh

    It means you had a CLSID referring to a non-existing AppID. Answering the question you were asked in the positive should cause the corresponding AppID to be created with default settings. However, I found that in some cases this doesn't work, most likely due to a permissions issue (couldn't be bothered to research this). If that is the case you'll see the exact same prompt again next time you open that DCOM pane.

    In any case, what this does is to fix an omission, and it won't do any harm one way or another.

    I gave up fixing these DCOM errors since as someone pointed out we don't really know what we are fixing or indeed whether we are creating new problems trying to fix them. I'd leave it to MS to fix them.
