  • Hi,

    According to the blog:

    On x64 operating systems from Windows XP to Windows Server 2008, the 64-bit version of DCOMCNFG.EXE does not correctly configure 32-bit DCOM applications for remote activation. This behavior causes components that are meant to be activated remotely instead being activated locally. This behavior does not occur in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and higher versions." - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms678426(v=vs.85).aspx

    You could check the version of DCOMCNFG.EXE. The environment is different between yours and the blog's.

    And it is better to comment under the blog to get support.

  • Could you please be more specific?

    Do you have x86 or x64 Office installed? OS?

  • Did you use the x64 edition of the DCOMCNFG.EXE utility?

    Where exactly do you fail?
