Server Execution Failed<BR><BR>The object is an out of process exe, that has been installed an run a number of times on a number of different servers.<BR>The problem (I think) is with dcomcnfg - although I have checked the settings and they all appear ok.<BR><BR>I usually make the following changes to dcomcnfg.<BR><BR>Go to the second tab and make sure that Enable COM Internet Services on this computer has a tick against it.<BR>Now, go to the first tab (Applications) and scroll down to <my component>. Press the Properties button.<BR>Go to the Security tab and select Custom Access Permissions. Edit and allow EVERYONE access.<BR>Now, go to the Identify tab. Select This User and type in the name and password of a user with Administrative rights.<BR><BR>I am not using Microsoft Transaction Server.<BR><BR>I have not seen this error before and searching on the internet has not turned up anything useful.<BR><BR>Any ideas?
