Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I've been trying to solve the "The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission" problem and everything I've been reading says I need to get "DCOMperm.exe". There are plenty of links to usage and download links that point to non-MS sources. I'd like to get this direct from Microsoft, but I can't find it there.

Some people say that it's part of an SDK, but I'm not sure which one. Does anyone have any experience getting this exe?

The source code for dcomperm.exe is included with the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4.

The project source directory is:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Samples\com\fundamentals\dcom\dcomperm

I was able to get the source file, install Visual Studio C# Express 2010 and import the .sln file into Visual Studios. I can't actually read anything since it throws an error that ".vcproj files are not readable by this version of Visual Studio". –  Doltknuckle Nov 28 '11 at 17:05
    
Looks like the sample is C++ code. you have to also get Visual Studio C++ and it seems to build properly now. –  Doltknuckle Nov 28 '11 at 17:15
    
@Doltknuckle The .vcproj file indicates the Project Type is Visual C++.. You would need the Visual C++ 2010 Express to build this project. I just installed VSC++ 2010 Express -- It updated the project files and compiled the .exe without errors. –  jscott Nov 28 '11 at 17:20
    
Thanks @jscott, that seems to have done the trick. Unfortunately, fixing this causes even more errors to crop up. I think that has more to do with the program throwing the errors though. –  Doltknuckle Nov 28 '11 at 23:43

you can download it from here , see at the end of the page.

it is just that file, you don't need to download all the SDK if you need just that file.

Is this for an application you're writing or for another application/component? If it's for another application/component then you can use dcomcfng to configure the permissions.
