Problem registering COM proxy in Windows 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    The COM+ services work fine in Windows 2003 32 bit machines. But we are trying to migrate the app to Windows 2008 R2 64 bit platform. The application has been coded in VS 6.0 with VC++. We multiple components but one of which is giving the following error "Error 1928. Error registering COM+ Application.  Contact your support personnel for more information.", during the proxy installation. I have tried some of the suggestions like http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q308940, but to no avail.

    Interestingly I have a work around. When trying to install the proxy it is attempting to create a folder under C:\Program Files (x86)\COMPlus Applications with a unique ID (like {68E5E389-FC3F-4EE9-BD66-C60E897B8145}). Once the process fails it will delete the folder. But if I manually create a folder and place the dependent DLLs it succeeds. I know this is not correct. But trying to figure how can resolve. I am new to COM world. I appreciate your help!
