COM+ Re-install

    Have two machines that stopped working the same way on the same day.
    VSS in both machines stopped working and NTBackups stopped as a
    result. VSS service will not start on either machine. Research
    indicated that COM+ probably had to be reinstalled.

    Upon trying to re-install COM+ following KB315296 I receive the
    following error while performing the Windows Components, Next
    procedure: Error in
    f:/xpsp3\com\com1x\src\comsvcs\events\lcedisp.cpp(131), hr = 80040206:
    Failed to CoCreate EventSystem object.

    I do have an F drive, but that folder is not present. My OS is at
    SP3, from an SP3 update CD.

    How do I get around this error or obtain the needed files?

    Thanks.

    I have succeeded in re-installing COM+. I began the installation of
    SP3 from the CD and stopped it after it had written data to the F
    drive. I then tried the re-installation procedure for COM+ and it
    worked.

    However, I am still getting VSS errors. When I attempt to run
    "vssadmin list writers" I receive "Error: 0x8000fff".

    Upon Windows restarts the Event Viewer shows two VSS events:

    Application: Event ID 5, Source VSS
    Volume Shadow Copy Service initialization error: the COM classes
    cannot be registered [0x80004015].

    System: Event ID 7024, Source Service Control Manager
    The Volume Shadow Copy service terminated with service-specific error
    2147500053 (0x80004015).

    I have been searching for corrective action for these errors but have
    not been successful. Any ideas?

    Thanks!
