Cant register exe DCOM without entering dcomcnfg

Cant register exe DCOM without entering dcomcnfg


I've made an exe dcom, and another app to change its properties programmatically.
Now im trying to make an installer. This installer, runs the command myapp.exe /RegServer, and after that, it runs myappconfig.exe, and fails.
I achieved that whats happening is that the DCOM is not registered, until i enter manually to dcomcnfg, and list registered DCOMS. Then, if I run myappconfig.exe, there is no error. Somehow, it seems that the DCOM object is not registered until i list the objects.
Now, the question, anybody knows how to register the exe DCOM without having to enter to dcomcnfg? That is not registering is sure, because if i enter to regedit, is not registered either.
