When I run DcomCnfg for an ActiveX exe I wrote it won't allow me to choose "Run application on this computer" under dcomcnfg properties for one of my classes.

I have 2 exposed classes. One it allows me to select that option, but the other it is greyed out and won't let me select it.

Most likely your registry on that class is corrupted. Just unregserver  your exe and bring up the regedit.exe. Looks for your progid that doesn't work. Find them and delete them
