Hello All!!

This morning I tried to upgrade my PC with the new ventrilo client(3.0.1), VOIP, and in doing so I found out that I can not install any programs.  I have a warning and an error in the event viewer.  Here they are below....

Source: DCOM  ID: 10010

The server {000C101C-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

and...

Source: MsiInstaller ID: 1015

Failed to connect to server. Error: 0x80080005

I haven't needed to install anything on my PC in a long time.  Windows Update service installed a security update yesterday Nov 24, 2007.  If there is any other information any one needs please let me know.

Sincerely.
Qujickue

Sorry - ignore the previous comment - this installer uses the Wise installer.

Have you tried re-running the Windows Installer 3.1 setup?
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=889482FC-5F56-4A38-B838-DE776FD4138C

Run the setup - restart - and try installing/uninstalling again.
If that doesn;t work - a repair install will be the only quick way to resolve the issue:

Yes i have re-ran the Windows Installer 3.1 Setup but it did not work.

The only problem trying to do a repair install is I do not have a Windows XP Pro CD to boot from.

I got a Windows XP Pro CD from a friend and did the repair install.  Now everything is working fine.  Thanks a lot.
