debugging vb dll w2k

I'm trying to debug a vb dll with W2K.  With NT 4 I was able to step into the vb code without a problem but with W2K I get a permissions error.  I've tried to edit the permissions of the default COM+ user but it didn't work.  Does anyone know how to set up W2K for debugging vb dll's?  Note: Upgrading to W2K does't affect the permissions, its only fresh installs that seem to have the problem.

This solution worked for the first day but not it doesn't work anymore for some reason.  I haven't changed any settings in vb just logged out of NT and back in again.  I tried reinstalling the sp3 for vs6 but it didn't work.  I get the exact same error: Server.CreateObject failed while checking permissions.  Do you have any ideas at all??

I figured out what I had to do.  I had to open the dcom configuration, (run dcomcnfg) and then go to the Default Properties Tab and change the Default Authentication from Connect to None.  This made the difference.

Thanks for your help,
