Problem accessing Local Activation Permission for Application

07-10-2005, 03:08 AM
I have a .Net application which includes a function to open a command shell
and run an executable (for a file extraction program, 7zip).

I can run the same exact command line manually with no problems. I noticed
that each time the same command line statement is run from the .Net
application (always unsuccessfully), an event is logged in the event viewer

The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation
permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
to the user ASPNET SID (ID). This security permission can be modified
using the Component Services administrative tool.

The CLS-ID references that of the command line program I execute (the file
extraction utility).

However, when I try to grant this program the appropriate permissions in
Component Services / DCOM Config, the program isn't listed!

Does the error mean that the ASPNET user account cannot execute the program?

If so, how can I remedy this if XP does not even list it in the DCOM Config

Should I be looking somewhere else?

Running: XP Pro / SP2
