I think i found the answer.

Details
Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 10016
Source: DCOM
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: EVENT_COM_ACCESS_DENIED_IN_SERVER_ACTIVATION_OR_LAUNCH_PERMISSION
Message: The %1 permission settings do not grant %2 %3 permission for the COM Server application with CLSID %4 to the user %5\%6 SID (%7). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

%1 = machine-default, application-specific; %2 = local, remote; %3 = launch, activation; %4 = ; %5 = /; %6 = .
 
   
Explanation
A program, the Clsid displayed in the message, tried to start the DCOM server by using the DCOM infrastructure. Based on the security ID (SID), this user does not have the necessary permissions to start the DCOM server.
 
   
User Action
Verify that the user has the appropriate permissions to start the DCOM server.

To assign permissions

Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value
HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32
The clsid value is the information displayed in the message.
In the right pane, double-click Default. The Edit String dialog box is displayed. Leave this dialog box open.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component Services.
In the Component Services snap-in, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and double-click DCOM Config.
In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name.
Right-click the program name, and then select Properties.
On the Security tab, in the Launch and Activation Permissions group box, select Customize, and then click Edit.
Add the user to the permissions list, and give the user the appropriate permissions.

I'm not sure where you copied that from, but did you install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 on your SBS by chance?

Maybe so... but as you'll see from my answer in your other question, did you follow the proper instructions for installing WSS 3.0 on your SBS?  (http://sbsurl.com/wss3)

I have the same problem.
The user is NETWORK SERVICE/NT AUTHORITY, SID=S-1-5-20
--> how do i find out which user this is ?  How can i "convert" the SID to a user ?

optivity1 look at the solution i posted . It worked for me.
Hi,

I'm having the same problem but in Regedit (HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32 ) I'm missing the localserver32 part.

Is it possible that the CLSDID hasn't got one and what should I change now?
Hi TechSoEasy,

Thx for the advice I'll do that asap
