DCOM remote Activex exe

okay, i created a samlle qctivex exe to get centralised properties of a "server"
My app cannot load the remote server..it give me access denied
all pcs on the network automatically login using a power user type account.
I have add everyone and system to the allow access part of the dcom config, but i still can't get my app to work unless i log the cliens in as admins.
any ideas..

try co create a share on server. I had this problem ones.
just share a folder with your activex .

p.s. did you run dcon config on your server?
If you start the exe on the server manually, can you login then ?

Did you build the ActiveX EXE with Remote Server Files and did you set a reference to these in your client app ?

yup refernced the files in the client with the vbr and tlb's

thanks for all the info, but i still can't get it to work.
i started the server manually and again i received the permission denied.
As far as trusted domains. i don't really have a domain, it is a workgroup.
i will try the dcom cnfg again later today and perhaps i will find something i had previously overlooked.#
