Starting Distributed Transaction Coordinator RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,


    Because of the type of transactions I use, I need the use of the service Distributed Transaction Coordinator. How can I let eather the application, or the Setup of the application start this service ? At this moment the end-user needs to start it up manually in the Component Services.


    Any help is appreciated.

  • I think the key here is to look in the Services Control Panel instead of the Component Services control panel.


    Click Start, Run and type:  services.msc

    Find the Distributed Transaction Coordinator and double-click it.

    Set the startup type to Automatic.

    Now it will start whenever Windows starts.
