Com+ Catalog error

Whenever i try to change some settings in COM+ or try to add a component i get the following error:

You do not have permission to perform the requested action. If security is enabled on the System Application target computer make sure you are included in the appropriate roles.

Any help would be appreciated

Are you logged in as Administrator or just a User ?
Do you have full access to the "target computer" ?
If you're not the administrator then you need to get your privileges changed to allow you access or get the administrator to perform the required function.

I was logged in as an administrator (i am a memeber of the administrators group) and i changed all the security settings to point to my user as well - i was on the target computer so as administrator i should have rights.

I eventually solved the problem with a system restore.

Thanks

Yes that would do it but it would have been nice to know what caused it so it can be avoided next time.
Anyway glad you got it fixed.

This is how the COM+ catalog works in Windows 2000 and
its likely the same on Win XP:

To be able to connect and configure the COM+ catalog for any computer (locally or remotely) you have to add the
user that should be able to administrate the machine to the Administrator Role of the System Application.
