Changing DCOM Run Location programatically

Changing DCOM Run Location programatically

Changing DCOM Run Location programatically

Hello All,

For a customer requirement, I need to be able to change the run location of two DCOM components programatically. That is, when you naviate to Component Services -> ... -> DCOM Config and then go to a components properties, I need to be able to select and unselect the "Run application on this computer" checkbox.

The reason is that sometimes the application will need to be run from a laptop in the field, and other times the laptop will be plugged into a network and will need to interact with the central server that is running these components as well.

When I say programatically, I just mean I need something they can click and that it can inform them that there computer has been set up to run locally / on the network.

Just as a reality check, if both "Run application on this computer" and "Run application on the following computer" are checked, it will run the application on "this" computer, correct?

Thanks in advance.
