pws

I just can not make the pws work, it gives a lot of problems at the end saying that the ms transaction server failed to install and there is aproblem with the registry. Can somone give me a solution to run the PWS between my two network computers both running Win98 and fp2000.

thanks

Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS), core components installed with IIS, requires that the default Distributed COM (DCOM) impersonation level be set to Identify.

Do the following in the same order:

1. Run Dcomcnfg.exe.
2. Click the Default Properties tab.
3. The Default Impersonation Level should be set to Identify.
4. Backup the Microsoft PWS configuration if necessary.  
5. Uninstall the PWS.
6. Install the PWS.

Next time around it should work fine!
