EventID 10016 – The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

When you install SharePoint2010 you might encounter some kind of the following Error in your Eventlog

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID




to the user Domain\AccountName SID (SID) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

When you now try to grant the GUID Application DCOM permissions in the dcomcnfg you will find yourself not beeing able to modify the properties (at least when you are running Windows Server 2008 R2).

To be able to modify the properties you first need to grant your account permissions in the registry:


Right click and select properties, on the security tab you grant your account full control permissions.

Now you can use the dcomcnfg to modify the permissions to get rid of the error.


Please be aware: manipulating your registry is done at your own risk, don’t blame me if you screw up your system.


EventID 1004 – C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Service\Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe’ does not exist

During my daily work I face a lot of SharePoint related errors, blood red eventlogs or even some warnings, which color logfiles in colors they are not supposed to have.

Like this little warning right here occurring in your system eventlog: EventID 1004

Detection of product {GUID}’, feature ‘PeopleILM’, component ‘{GUID}’ failed. The resource ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Service\Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe’ does not exist.

This one can be resolved easily by granting the Network Service permissions to the folder “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Service”
