Resolve

Register the component on the server

The Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator service (MSDTC) reported an error with a program that interfaces with MSDTC. The specific error is in a call to the CoCreateInstance COM object on the class ID that is specified in the event message. For the class ID that is specified, create the CoCreateInstance COM object and register it on the server.

Use the COM+ Component Install Wizard to add components to the Components folder of a COM+ application. This installation process registers the component on the computer.

To add a COM component to a COM+ application:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type comexp.msc, and then click OK. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
  3. Expand Component Services, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and then expand COM+ Applications.
  4. Open the folder for the application in which you want to install the component, and then click Components.
  5. On the Action menu, point to New, and then click Component.
  6. Follow the instructions in the COM+ Application Install Wizard.
