In Server 2003, I can go into DCOMCNFG and find a component called "Microsoft Office Word 97 - 2000 - Document" component, but this is missing in Server 2008!

I need to find this component to set permissions and identify for Word 2007, please help.

    I've found the solution to this.

    The application name is actually not 'Microsoft Office Word 97 - 2000 Document" anymore in Server 2008. The application name is the same name as the AppID of Word. So what I did is scroll down in the DCOMCNFG windows and look for the AppID. Done!
