I'm trying to create COM+ applications with the Component Services Administrative Tool.  Does anyone know where I can get this tool?  I've looked around for it, but no luck.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking.  You really can't find the COM+ Applications install?  You create the COM+ application using different software (like VB6) and then install it using the Component Services Administrative Tool.  To install it, you just need to keep expanding the Component Services tree until you get to the COM+ Applications on your computer.  Then you create a new application and reference your new DLL in the application.  I'm guessing this isn't quite what you're asking, though.  Can you be a bit more specific about what you're wanting?

Yeah, I really can't find the COM+ Applications install.  I'm expecting a default application type that I can select (at least COM if not COM+).  The application types I DO have are as follows:

Standard EXE
ActiveX EXE
ActiveX DLL
ActiveX Control
VA Application WIzard
VB Wizard Manager
ActiveX Document DLL
ActiveX Document EXE
Admin
Data Project
DHTML Applicaiton
IIS Application
VB Pro Edition Controls

Do I have to download some service pak?  Am I totally lost?

You want the ActiveX DLL and then in the references of the project you can check the COM+ Services Type Library.
