Visual Sudio set up

I am running Win NT as a stand-alone workstation. When I set up Visual Studio 6 on this machine I get an error message saying it cannot set up DCom setup is not complete...rerun set up. When I run dcomcnfg I do not see an entry for the program it is trying to set up DCom for. Can someone clue me in I know this is not the Visual Studio page or the NT page but I am guessing someone is using both of these products.

Looks like you have installed your NT box as stand alone as well. Means that there is no network installed  and DCom needs that. I would recommend to reinstall NT as a network workstation.

Setup often gets stuffed up by perfomance monitors in  NT, in some cases does not even let you get pass the first screen of the installation wizard of Visual studio, to turn these off temporary goto the registry and look for performance as a key from the following point.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

at each find of the performance key you will see an entry called library and a file name as a value, rename this file name to something that you will easily be able to undo and contiue searching on until there are no more performance keys left in this part of the registry.

There is also an article on the MS knowledge base about this.
