How do I configure COM+ Server security for all users?

Howdy! I've installed 8 VB6 DLLs as COM+ components on a Windows 2003 Advanced Server. I've created VBS scripts on a client that does a CreateObject for each and each works to that extent. However, when I try and access a method within an object, I get a 429. I think I'm missing a permission level on the server but I, nor anyone I work with, know what it is. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!   =:o)

To configure launch permissions for distributed Web applications
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then click Component Service.
  3. In the left pane of Component Services, double-click Component Services, double-click Computers, and then click My Computer.
  4. Click the DCOM Config folder.
  5. Inthe details pane, find the object for which you want to modify thedefault launch permissions, right-click the icon for the object, andthen click Properties.
  6. Click the Security tab.
  7. Under Launch Permissions, click Customize, and then click Edit.

Thanks again, Jagdish, for your help. Regrettably, I purchase Mr. Mojica's book several months ago, studied it, and used what I learned to establish my COM+ environment. The "twist" is that it all worked fine in a test environment (different server, of course) and the failures only started when I was given a new (production) server to work with. Sigh....

But, having read the book doesn't mean I memorized everything, does it?!? (LOL)

I will go back and peruse the relevant sections.

Thanks again!
