    DCOM error when starting standard apps


    After updating my laptop (Asus Transformer), I couldn't open the preinstalled standard apps (Mail, Store, Paint3D, ...), they pop up and after that they close immediatly. The error shown in the event monitor says:

    "The server 'Microsoft.WindowsStore12001.1001.1.0x64<some random letters>!App' couldn't be registered in the given time by DCOM" (Sorry it's tranlated by myself because the systems language is german)

    Source: DistributedCOM Event-ID: 10010 Layer: Error

    Does anyone experienced something similar or have/had the same problem?

  2. Some Windows 10 apps not working with DCOM error


    Hello, I have been having this problem for a while now. There are some apps not working on a W10 Pro install, specifically:

    Microsoft Finance app

    Microsoft Weather app

    Facebook Messenger app

    I get these errors in event viewer:

    Finance app:

    Error 10010: "AppexFinance Server did not register with DCOM within the required timeout"

    Error 5973: "Activation of app AppID failed with error: app not started"

    Weather app:

    Error 10010: "App Server did not register with DCOM within the required timeout"

    Error 5973: "Activation of app AppID failed with error: app not started"

    Messenger app:

    Error 10010: "App Server did not register with DCOM within the required timeout"

    Error 5973: "Activation of app AppID failed with error: app not started"

    This doesn't happen with any new app I install, just with Facebook Messenger for now and the two Microsoft apps.

    Is there a way to fix this without creating a new user account? I really need to keep this account.

    PS: I have already tried sfc /scannow, which as usual amounted to nothing.

    I've also tried this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...5-56817b072905

    Start Menu/Search/Action Center not working. Unable to load DCOM Servr

    Hello guys!
    I got an issue that I used a registry cleaner then the News store app stopped working so I used the get-appx Powershell command to try to fix it then start menu (ShellExperienceHost & Cortana) stopped working.

    What I tried so far
    • In-place upgrade didn't work
    • sfc /scannow didn't find any corruption
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth No corruption detected
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth Command runned but didn't fix anything
    • Uninstalled Anti-Virus
    • Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”} Didn't work

    Now I got these errors in Event Viewer for the apps:
    • Unable to start a DCOM Server: Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_1.12.2.18334_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy!CortanaUI as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:"2147958031"Happened while starting this command:"C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\SearchUI.exe" -ServerName:CortanaUI.AppXa50dqqa5gqv4a428c9y1jjw7m3btvepj.mca



    • Unable to start a DCOM Server: Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_10.0.18334.1_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy!App as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:"2147958031"Happened while starting this command:"C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\StartMenuExpe rienceHost.exe" -ServerName:App.AppXywbrabmsek0gm3tkwpr5kwzbs55tkqay.mca (Event ID: 10001)

    Please tell me of any possible solutions other than clean install because I want clean install to be my last resort as I have a lot of apps/programs installed in the system!

    Thanks!

    Regards,

    DCOM error when starting standard apps

    DCom persistent error


    Remote proxy factory 32 class writes a Dcom Event Viewer error when EDGE, with multi-tabs, is closed...saying that it doesn't have activation permission for NJNxxx\My Account. It has.

    In this HOME version, there are two registry entries for the RPF32 class. In each, Desktop-NJNxxx\Users; Desktop-NJNxxx\My Account; Desktop-NJNxxx\Administrators and SYSTEM have full control.

    The same entries appear in DComcfg, along with Local Service, which has been given local launch permission for both RPF32class entries.

    So, the permissions procedure has been followed, yet the error persists. Why?

    (This box has HOME Win10. Another, with PRO, uses default Dcom settings and doesn't reference 'Desktop-NJNxxx. ' It instead lists the user name, and it never throws the Dcom error. That's likely not relevant - just a naming convention difference.)
