Symptoms

Since the DCOM security has been set on the client machine (i.e. full control for both the anonymous and the everyone users), the following error message is being thrown in the Windows Event Viewer:

"The launch and activation security descriptor for the COM Server application with CLSID
{E652643D-6CC1-48AC-915D-01842B04F292}
is invalid. It contains Access Control Entries with permissions that are invalid. The requested action was therefore not performed. This security permission can be corrected using the Component Services administrative tool.
