Hi Experts,

I wanted to know how to add existing roles to a component that i add. I have got 3 roles and i want to add these to the components.
I have done most of the code to add a role but could not get the role checked in the security tab od the COM+.

In simple, How do i add a role to a component using vb code.
any sample would be of great help.

working sample contains 100 pts extra.

Thanks in Advance for all the Experts,
Bhalpa

Try this

Dim catalog As New COMAdminCatalog
    Dim packages As COMAdminCatalogCollection
    Dim package As COMAdminCatalogObject
    Dim components As COMAdminCatalogCollection
    Dim component As COMAdminCatalogObject
    Dim roles As COMAdminCatalogCollection
    Dim role As COMAdminCatalogObject
    Dim users As COMAdminCatalogCollection
    Dim user As COMAdminCatalogObject
    Dim roleUtil As COMAdminCatalogCollection 'RoleAssociationUtil
    Dim computer As COMAdminCatalogCollection
   
    On Error Resume Next
    Set packages = catalog.GetCollection("Applications")
    packages.Populate
   
    ' Locate desired package
    For Each package In packages
        If package.Value("Name") = "YourPackageName" Then
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
   
    If package Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
   
    ' Iterate through the components and add 'Everyone' to each role
    Set components = packages.GetCollection("Components", package.Key)
    components.Populate
    For Each component In components
        Set roles = components.GetCollection("RolesForComponent", component.Key)
        roles.Populate
        If roles.Count = 0 Then
            Set role = roles.Add
            role.Value("Name") = "Everyone"   ' replace your role name here
            roles.SaveChanges
        End If
