QuestionIssues with identity of COM+ application Pin
Member 39605603-Feb-12 5:52
memberMember 39605603-Feb-12 5:52 
Hello,

I am now facing a very strange issue.
One of our product installers registers numerous COM dll's during the installation of the product. Subsequently, this creates COM+ applications under Administrative tools --> Component Services --> COM+ applications.

One of the COM+ applications is created during the install to run under NETWORK SERVICE account. However, at times , it has been observed that the identity of this COM+ application is set to interactive. I am using a msi based installer. The windows installer log files clearly state that the COM+ application was set to run under NETWORK SERVICE account.
We use our own custom code to create this COM+ application.
This issue is not reproducible at will. However, it does happen on some environments.

Either of the two things is happening:
i)There is a bug in the installer code which is causing this
ii)There is something outside of install which is causing this.

I need to root cause this behavior.
Reason as to what is causing this.
Upon carrying out some research on the web, i have come across the following two articles:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926098
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/distributedservices/archive/2009/06/19/tracing-in-com-and-complus.aspx

These two articles talk about how diagnostic logging can be enabled for COM+ components.
However, i am not really sure if they will be of use to me , as i need to accurately pin point as to what is changing the identity of the COM+ component to INTERACTIVE USER.
The other major disadvantage with this logging is that the .etl files output ,are in a binary format and can only be decoded by contacting Microsoft with the help of so called .tmf files.

Questions:
i)What are the other options available to me to diagnose this issue?
ii)Can i format the .etl files without the help of Microsoft?
iii)Is there any mechanism in place just like process monitor, which could monitor all the events within COM+?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Kiran Hegde
