Com+ in Windows 2003

Com+ in Windows 2003

I have an application written in vb6 that calls a function to create a com+ application and install the components. This work for win2k see below, but does not work for win 2003. Any ideas?

Function SetupiPort() As Boolean  ' Return False if any errors occur.

    '  Initialize error handling for this function.
    SetupiPort = False
   ' On Error GoTo My_Error_Handler

    '  Open a session with the catalog.
    '  Instantiate a COMAdminCatalog object.
    Dim objCatalog As COMAdminCatalog
    Set objCatalog = CreateObject("COMAdmin.COMAdminCatalog")

    '  Create a new COM+ application.
    '  First get the "Applications" collection from the catalog.
    Dim objApplicationsColl As COMAdminCatalogCollection
    Set objApplicationsColl = objCatalog.GetCollection("Applications")

    '  Add a new item to this collection.
    Dim objcomApp As COMAdminCatalogObject
    Set objcomApp = objApplicationsColl.Add

    '  The "Applications" collection determines the available properties.
    '  Set the "Name" property of the new application item.
    objcomApp.Value("Name") = "MyComponents"

    '  Set the "Description" property of the new application item.
    objcomApp.Value("Description") = "My Components"

    '  Save changes made to the "Applications" collection.

    '  Install components into the application.
    '  Use the InstallComponent method on COMAdminCatalog.
    '  In this case, the last two parameters are passed as empty strings.
    objCatalog.InstallComponent "MyComponents", "c:\mydll\myvers30.dll", "", ""

Exit Function
