Fix for 'DistributedCOM' errors
« on: February 02, 2018, 01:13:17 PM »
Hello,

First of all, great program you have here! It does a much better than job than most commercial products by the big companies.  My one request is the addition of a feature that fixes the 'DistributedCOM' errors, which are all to common in the Event Viewer (e.g., https://gyazo.com/a5e38e03729cb53587909e1dd6615244).

Thank you,
Dpower20

I just ignore them but you could apply the steps in this article for DCOM 10016 if you want - https://appuals.com/how-to-fix-dcom-error-10016-on-windows-7-8-and-10/

However, you can get it for DCOM 10010 and different keys, so it would be difficult to apply a general fix.

This is a useful batch file for adding Take Ownership to the right click context menu but this one applies only to Win 10.

I will give it a shot! Thanks for the link.

Also, do you know a way to make WiFi work in safe mode? Only Ethernet seems to work for me (it says the driver for the network card could not be initialized in Device Manager while in Safe Mode).

 Yes - as in Win 8/8.1 and Win 10 in Safe Mode with Networking, wireless is disabled but on the desktop press CTRL+ALT+DELETE then click on the WiFi icon then on your SSID and Connect.

Left click away to close that pane then hit Cancel where you'll see a full WiFi icon and connectivity.
