COM Error Access Denied 0x8004005

Trying to create an Access.application.8 object using Cold Fusion. It works fine if the Cold Fusion service is running under the 'system account'  or the built in 'Administrator' account. It fails when runningthe service under any other account, even though the other accounts belong to the 'Administrators' group.  All accounts are local.  NT 4.0 sp3, Option Pack, IIS 4.0, CF 4.0 enterprise.  Same setup two boxes.  One box is a PDC, other is 'member' server on totally different network.

I have also tried explicitly setting launch and access permission on the COM object through oleview.

Any takers?

Here's a snippet from Technet article Q180119 :


CAUSE
=====
 
Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS), core components installed with IIS, requires that the default Distributed COM (DCOM) impersonation level be set to Identify.
 
DCOM allows you to configure the ability of a client application to launch and access objects on remote computers and the local computer. This setting enables the caller identity to be checked on out-of-process and off-computer calls and enables MTS role-based security checking. If the default DCOM impersonation level is set to some other value, you can experience errors when you set up MTS using the MTS Explorer or running Microsoft Transaction Server applications. In these cases you will likely
see the error code 0x800706be reported in error dialog boxes.
 
WORKAROUND
==========
 
To work around this problem, follow these steps:
 
1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.
 
2. Click the Default Properties tab.
 
3. The Default Impersonation Level should be set to Identify.
 
4. Backup the Microsoft Windows NT Option Pack configuration if
   necessary. This should not be necessary for a new installation. For more information on this topic, please refer to the online documentation.
 
5. Uninstall the Microsoft Windows NT Option Pack.
 
6. Install the Microsoft Windows NT Option Pack.
