Trying to modify the Launch and Activation Permissions on  IIS Admin Service Properties

When I go to the Properties page the items are greyed out.

I went in the registry to change ownership from trusted installer to the local administrators group of this server.

I used these procedures

1. Run Regedit.exe and browse to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}" key.
2. Secondary-mouse click on the {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} key and select Permissions...
3. Click the Advanced button in the Permissions window and select the Owner tab. Under Change owner to select the local Administrators group and click on Apply, then OK.
4. Then under Permissions window, select the local Administrators group and under Permissions for Administrators select Full Control and click on Apply, then OK.
NOTE: DO NOT modify/change any permissions for the TrustedInstaller account.
5. Re-run the Component Services management console (dcomcnfg.exe) and you should now be able to modify the settings for IIS WAMREG admin service package.

7.Use the following steps to grant the AX Business Connector Proxy User account the Launch and Activation rights

a. Expand Component Services, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and expand DCOM Config.
b. Right-click IIS WAMREG admin Service, and then click Properties.
c. Click the Security tab.
d. Under Launch and Activation Permissions, click Edit.
e. Under Group or user names section, add the Business Connector Proxy User account, and select the user account
f. Under Permissions for the Business Connector Proxy User account, select the Local Launch and Local Activation checkboxes
g. Click OK and OK and close the Component Services management console.

I am trying to add WSS_WPG and WSS_ADMIN_WPG  groups

I have done this same procedure in the past on this same server for other SharePoint 2010 permissions.

What am I missing here?


Thanks
