The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

I'm getting the error, "The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064} and APPID {9209B1A6-964A-11D0-9372-00A0C9034910}.
EventID 10016.  

I researched Technet and tried the second solution below and it didn't fix it. I even added "everyone" and "domain users".

The first solution I didn't try because I don't have time to add every user we have.  I didn't reboot the server, so I don't know if that might help.

NOTE: this is only happening on 1 of our Citrix Servers

Any other advice would be helpful

I tried the Citrix thread but it is still happening.  Very odd that it is only one Citrix server.  Any other ideas?

it seems that maybe there needed to be some time before this worked, but I believe it solved the problem.

Thanks
