DCOM Issues

I am getting a DCOM error message on two computers running WIN XP Pro SP3 on both.  This is the message that is occuring:
DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service gusvc with arguments "" in order to run the server:
{89DAE4CD-9F17-4980-902A-99BA84A8F5C8}

I have check in the Services and both the DCOM Server Process Launcher and the Machine Debug Manager are running and are set to run automtically.

How can i get these messages to stop as it is impeading the performance of the machines?

Only thing I've managed to found is that it's solved with latest SP install, but you already did that.
When do you receive this error?

Check this comments on this specific version of the Router.
http://wincert.net/news/310-linksys-wrt110-rangeplus-wireless-router.html
Check comments, you have a possible fix on the lower part of the page.

I know that Linksys WRT54G and GL versions worked perfectly, but new ones are usually problematic.

Search the registry for the following.....

89DAE4CD-9F17-4980-902A-99BA84A8F5C8

When you get a hit, look underneath the key, for either a name, or another key called InProcServer...Should point you to an application.....

Actually looks like a component of the Google Updater Service.

Try uninstalling the Google Updater Service from teh ARP applet in the copntrol panel. Actually, depending on what Google Apps you use, might be needed to keep this.... May need to uninstall them all, and then reinstall them.....

Ok,  I am on SP3 with all the latest updates and did a search for 89DAE4CD-9F17-4980-902A-99BA84A8F5C8.  it pointed me to the Google Internet for Windows.  I removed it and will monitor the event log for any more DCOM errors.

Thanks for the help.

Okay, after removing the Google Internet for Windows from the ARP applet I am still getting the DCOM error.  this is the latest one: DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service MDM with arguments "" in order to run the server:
{0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064}
Any other ideas?  Thanks for the continued support.

Did you remove ALL google apps?

Search for this one now......

0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064

Im hoping I dont see a pattern here......

johnb6767Commented:
That one looks like the Machine Debug Manager. I usually disable that service........ But it seems like somtehting is relying on it as  a dependency.

However, if you wish to keep it...

Look in the registry under here....

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CurrentControlSet\Services\MDM

for the ImagePath value on teh right hand pane. Mine, which is SP3 as well, Office 2007 is ....

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7DEBUG\mdm.exe"

Need to make sure the file exists in that path......

johnb6767Commented:
Oh, and the last steps were if you want to make sure it is enabled and running.....

Okay,
I did remove all Google apps.  The only thing left is my default page on IE is google.com.
The 0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064 is in the registry and the value for it is the Machine Debug Manager.    The registry entry of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MDM pointed to
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7DEBUG\mdm.exe" as well and the program is located there.

I am still getting the DCOM errors and it seems to slow the computer down.

There's probably one application which is installed on both computers which is responsible for this. You can try to uninstall "suspicious" applications one by one on one of those PC's.

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7DEBUG\mdm.exe"

Does that one have any dependencies?

Might try replacing the executable mdm.exe with a known good copy...

BeaucairejAuthor Commented:
how do i tell if it has any dependancies &where would i get a good copy?
0
 
johnb6767Commented:
Another working system, same version preferably....

Might try c:\windows\system32\dllcache

Also, as for the dependencies.....

You can right click the service in start>run>services.msc, and look at the Dependencies Tab. It will list 2 sections, the top one being what you are looking for "This service depends on teh following System Services"....

Should be DCOM Server Process Launcher, which I am guessing that is not generating any more errors for you..... If it is, thats where we need to be looking....

Okay, I just looked on a good system WIN XP Pro SP3, same as the one with the DCOM problems and I could not fine mdm.exe when i shearch for it, ilooked in the system and hidden folders.  Also on the working machine there are no dependancies.  I am still getting this message:  DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service MDM with arguments "" in order to run the server:
{0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064}

When i look in the servers DCOM is started & it has no dependancies either.  So now what do i do?
0
 
johnb6767Commented:
DCOM should have a dependency on RPCSS..

Do you really need to utilize this service? I usually disable it..... That should eliminate the messages....

BeaucairejAuthor Commented:
Without DCOM enabled Quickbooks will not start.  So I need it.  I copied mdm.exe from another computer and it seems to be working fine now.  Thanks
