[UWP] [VS] DCOM Security - Unauthorized Access - Error Message 0x80070005: Trying to View Design Tool in Visual Studio 2015 Community RRS feed

  • Question

  • "Visual Studio" AND "Design tool" AND Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

    In hopes of saving C drive space (NOT) I installed VS2015 on external hard drive. I'll eventually, I guess reinstall just on C drive since it didn't save space. Taking MVA tutorials and found a reoccurring issue with access denied for tutorial exercises. I went through steps for WMI Troubleshooting. It seemed to work once. But started another tutorial exercise and found same issue again. This time steps do not work because I've already ticked inside "Edit Limit" fields, per instructions below.


    Access denied by DCOM security.

    The user does not have remote access to the computer through DCOM. Typically, DCOM errors occur when connecting to a remote computer with a different operating system version.

    Give the user Remote Launch and Remote Activation permissions in dcomcnfg. Right-click My Computer-> Properties. Under COM Security, click "Edit Limits" for both sections. Give the user you want remote access, remote launch, and remote activation. Then go to DCOM Config, find "Windows Management Instrumentation", and give the user you want Remote Launch and Remote Activation.

    I am at a loss. How can I get the VS2015 Designer tool to show?

  • Hi GeneralB,

    An administrator or a MOF file can configure a WMI namespace so that no data is returned unless you use packet      privacy (RPC_C_AUTHN_LEVEL_PKT_PRIVACY or PktPrivacy as a      moniker in a script) in a connection to that namespace. This ensures that data is encrypted as it crosses the      network. If you try to set a lower authentication level, you will get an access denied message.

    For more information, please refer to:
