Event id 10016 runtime broker

Original Title: event id 10016 runtime broker does not have the right permissions .. this error has been generated  thousands of times on win 10 pro

here is the error message 

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

{D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}

and APPID

{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}

to the user NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE SID (S-1-5-19) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

---
I have ignored it up until now as I don't notice anything amiss.  But now I would like to cut down on the thousands of error messages in event viewer.

I have tried to look this up.  I have tried to follow the advice after learning the clsid belongs to runtimebroker which  handles things for metro apps.  In the registry,  I right click  either entry for the clsid  or app id  and select permissions/ advanced...  I then choose add to administrators and to carry it over to all subfolders.  But when I try this  it says I do not have permission.

This makes sense to me as would not this core windows component already  have trusted installer status?

So now I am here asking how do I solve  this error?


TIA :)

Hi Red,

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

I understand your concern and will be glad to help you.

Appreciating you for providing details about the issue and your effort towards resolving it.

There are 2 registry keys you have to set permissions before you go to the DCOM Configuration in Component services: CLSID key and APPID key.


I suggest you to follow some steps to fix issue:

1. Press Windows + R keys and type regedit and press Enter.
2. Go to HKEY_Classes_Root\CLSID\*CLSID*.
3. Right click on it then select permission.
4. Click Advance and change the owner to administrator. Also click the box that will appear below the owner line.
5. Apply full control.
6. Close the tab then go to HKEY_LocalMachine\Software\Classes\AppID\*APPID*.
7. Right click on it then select permission.
8. Click Advance and change the owner to administrators.
9. Click the box that will appear below the owner line.
10. Click Apply and grant full control to Administrators.
11. Close all tabs and go to Administrative tool.
12. Open component services.
13. Click Computer, click my computer, and then click DCOM.
14. Look for the corresponding service that appears on the error viewer.
15. Right click on it then click properties.
16. Click security tab then click Add User, Add System then apply.
17. Tick the Activate local box.

So use the relevant keys here and the DCOM Config should give you access to the greyed out areas:
CLSID {D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}

APPID {9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}

hi thanks for your reply BUT  I have tried to follow these instructions already.  The problem is  when I select administrators  (and click on the allow all subfolders checkbox  etc..)  and then click ok do it, a message pops up and tells me my access is denied and it does not carry out the operation.  I can't change the permissions.

I checked the clsid and appid you posted  but they are not in my registry...just to be sure.

as noted mine are:

CLSID

{D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}

and APPID

{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}

I ran regedit  as an administrator. 

(and indeed I have already backed up the registry and key but thanks for stressing the need for backups :)

So my problem remains  why can't I change the permissions in the registry?

I tried to add a picture  but it froze up...so I will try adding it separately.

One other thing I have noticed is  that it seems to be 115 errors  over a 2 min period  each time it happens.

identical error here

class id

D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160

app id

9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276

what is needed is an explanation why a system process like runtime broker is set to the incorrect system privilege settings. Manually elevating these might cause vulnerability?

What is the design decision for this DEFAULT behaviour and why is it considered an error

by the system itself.

Makes no sense Microsoft.....

Wont touch that regkey with a ten foot pole. This needs to be patched and it also seems

to be a dcom related bug that goes back even to Windows XP . ...MS never cared to adress this issue in a proper manner it seems. Outright Sloppy.

First you have to change the Owner to Admins.

I did try this approach, corrected permissions here and there and then all hell broke loose, new errors appeared, mainly concerning Metro Apps and Cortana. Be sure to have fresh full backup, just in case.

BTW By chance, do you have any problems with the tiles, not refreshing its content in the background, eg Mail tile became empty and there is no info on new emails?

Yet another here with the same errors on:

class id

D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160

app id

9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276

I followed all of the instructions above, and the errors disappeared and then within 2 more boots they were back again. I checked the permissions via regedit and also the ones in DCOMCNFG and they hadn't reverted they were still the same as the recommended new settings, and it had made no difference. Want another crack at solving this one anybody?

I had forgotten about this ...  I ended up just ignoring the errors and not looking at my event viewer anymore.   After checking, I no longer get these errors.  Probably the November update cured it.

A system restore would not have worked though..as I had the errors right after I upgraded to windows 10.  Also seems like overkill.

My system is fully up to date but I still have these event 10016 errors - 53 in the last 7 days.  Some have CLSID {D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160} and some have CLSID {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239}.  I haven't noticed any problems as a result of these errors so, unless anyone knows otherwise, I'm leaving things as they are.
