Run location problem

Run location problem

Run location problem

Hello, I'm a little new to COM/DCOM, and have been tasked with resolving an issue that one of our customers is having with our COM application on some of their machines. Whenever they try to start up the service, it starts and stops immediately. We had them open the properties for our application under component services and noticed the "Run application on this computer" checkbox is unchecked and greyed out on all of the machines that are having the problem, and I believe this to be the underlying cause of the problems. This app was working fine for a few months on all of these machines, so it was installed properly. Was there a Microsoft security update released recently that might be causing this? The machines are all XP SP2.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

RE: Run location problem

Did you ever solve this issue??? I'm running into the exact same problem, and can't figure out why the Run Application On This Computer is disabled on some machines, but not on others(!)
