The usual one is;

The server {9F92FFA3-40D1-475A-9323-A39C705DAB86} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

I found a Microsoft Knowledge Base Article concerning the DCOM 10010 Error :

Microsoft Knowledge Base wrote:...


Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) client programs that run inside Terminal Server sessions other than the console cannot create objects of classes implemented inside DCOM servers running as Terminal Server services.

You may also receive occurrences of event ID 10010 from DCOM in the Event Viewer with the following description:

The server <clsid> did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.




WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

To explicitly register a DCOM class as a system global, use the following steps:

1. If it does not exist, create the following registry key:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Terminal Server\Compatibility\CLSID

2. Create a subkey with {CLSID} as its name, where the CLSID is the class identifier of the DCOM class that is to be a system global. For example, a subkey would be:


3. Under the above subkey, create fSystemGlobalClass as the value name with a REG_DWORD type and set its value data to 1.

Or, you can upgrade to Microsoft Windows 2000 Server with Terminal Services, which does not have the same restriction.


Please notice that you use the registry editor at your own risk.

What about "disabling" the DCOM service?

Maybe this Article will help you out:

Re: Disabling DCOM - Results

I have the same problem as others have mentioned here and just found this forum. Since others haven't posted a comment, I thought I'd mention that I did try disabling DCOM in the registry as suggested here. Unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem.

Best regards,

David Nevue

Here's what I did to fix it.

My regular message was "The server {FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.
A quick check through the registry at HKCR\Clsid\{FB7199AB-79BF-11D2-8D94-0000F875C541}\localserver32 suggested the culprit was Microsoft Messenger (surprise surprise!) Windows had sneakily reinstalled this pesky spyware upon installing SP1!

My solution was simple. I had to uninstall it once more.

I first checked that Windows hadn't replaced my edited sysoc.inf (C:\WINDOWS\inf) and replaced the hide value (which I'd deleted) from the msmgs line (it should read 'msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7'). I then proceeded to uninstall Microsoft Messenger from the add/remove programs panel. Upon a reboot things were all well and good and back to normal.

Ahhh bless Microsoft and their ingenuity.

I have got the same problem.
When this occurs (on my main server - shit happens....) there was no access to TS, or SMB shares... When I log on std console - there was few print jobs on spooler.... Somewhere in Web I've foun article about DCOM service and "Allow interact with desktop" option... In other words - I've DISABLED "interact with desktop" on spooler service - we'll see what happens...

Solution for 10010 ID Event and not runnig servicee

Postby Fixerion » Wed Apr 06, 2005 2:14 pm

I run my windows xp profi in Safe mode and started system restore to any point in the history. All system resources started OK.

Fixed it....

For anyone else who has this issue and stumbles upon this thread, I found what was causing it on my PC - Norton Internet Security. I completely uninstalled NIS, and then reinstalled NIS from scratch, and everything was back to normal. In fact, several system instabilities were suddenly eliminated.

So my guess is, at least in my case, something in NIS got corrupted, and the uninstall/reinstall fixed it.

I've been running XP Pro error free now for 2-3 months.

start -> run

go to component services -> click
computer -> click on DCOM configuration

when your get an message that X is connected/linked etc. to DCOM or something like that click on yes

(I got this error after running a registry cleaner)

Event ID:10010 "Server did not register..."

try re-applying this microsoft update : KB871260

Postby Eldopa » Tue Aug 09, 2005 7:40 pm

Concerning: 0C0A3666-30C9-11D0-8F20-00805F2CD064

start -> run

Look for "Machine Debug Manager"

Under Location: Uncheck "Run Application on this Computer"

Click OK

This was on my Windows 2000 SP4 and BAM. Fixed, no more errors in Event viewer either.

I ran dcomcnfg and I immediately got 2 messages saying something in MS Office wasn't registered. So I clicked yes to register then, then unchecked to run the application like someone else said. I hope this didn't screw anything up.
