COM+ and IIS7 RRS feed

  • User1073881637 posted

    This is probably a simple question but it'll come up at some point.  Where is my "component services" applet?  In IIS5/6 we use this option so we don't have to run 'regsvr32' on my server.  This appears to be gone.  My client / developer is going to say, here is my favorite classic COM+ component that I can't live with out.  How would an administrator handle this situation in IIS7?

    The Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is not just version 2.0 of the Microsoft Web Services platform (.ASMX). It will also replace the various distributed application environments that customers use today, i.e. COM+, DCOM, .NET Remoting and MSMQ.

    I don't know if there is a "new" shortcut for it but I can tell you how to find it :)

    Run MMC and then add Component Services to the console.

    I did this as Admin since the last thing I added required admin rights (cert services). To run as admin I had to right click a shortcut for mmc or cmd and select run as admin, then run mmc.

    Works great and COM+ is there!

    I usually do like this to launch Component Services.

    • Press Windows + R
    • Input 'dcomcnfg' and hit Enter.

    I think this works on Vista too.
