Regsvr32.exe fails with 0xC0000005 when logged in remotely as Domain Admin
Posted on 2009-07-10
Have a very weird situation where a customer is trying to register one of our DLLs when connected through terminal services. When logged in as Domain Admin they always get error 0xC0000005 from Regsvr32.exe regardless of the mode (i.e., install, execute, or console).
However if they connect as Local Admin for the machine they are able to register it. Any ideas what might be going on? I'm sure it must be a permissions issue but doesn't the Domain Admin have the same permissions as the Local Admin?
They are running Windows 2003 Server.
Thanks for any tips to solve this mystery.
