Interesting topic, I did some searching and found the following EE link:

   http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_21496861.html

This and all the other links I found talk about using something called "dcomperm".  It appears that dcomperm is an SDK sample from Microsoft located:

   http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vcsample98/html/vcsmpdcompermpermissionsforcomserver.asp

Using this link will take you to the Visual Studio 6.0 Samples, all the samples are about a 132Mb download

After installing the samples, open the .chm file and search for dcomperm.  This will give you a link to the actual source code.  Once you have extracted this and compiled it, you will be able to use dcomperm.  View the README.txt file, it appears to have instructions on how to use the exe.

There appeard to be some WMI options for Longhorn and Vista according to:
 
   http://www.mcse.ms/archive68-2006-3-2141217.html
   
Which appears to be talking about:

   http://windowssdk.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms748750.aspx

   ( Look for SetLaunchSecurityDescriptor )
   
Here is a way to query the dcom permissions using WMI:

What are you trying to achieve, do you want do that remotely, or deploy it, or?
In HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{783C030F-E948-487D-B35D-94FCF0F0C172} for example, there are launch permissions that get altered when altering acccess rights on Blocked Drivers which has that ID (783...), so a Start would be to extract these keys.
