Event ID 10016 - The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

Lately I get this system error a lot now that I have upgraded to Windows 8 Pro is a DistributedCom Event ID 10016. Below is the error text:

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\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) 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.

Anybody have any idea why I'm getting this error?

Same thing here. Greyed out. Windows 8.1 seems to fill the Event viewer with far more errors than previous versions.

edit: OK, found out why it was greyed out. There are 2 reg keys you have to set permissions to before you go to the DCOM Configuration in Component services. The CLSID key and the APPID key.

From another forum, although it applies to a different app, same principle:

1. Open Regedit.
2. Go to HKEY_Classes_Root\CLSID\*CLSID*.
Note: *CLSID* stand for the ID that appears in your event viewer error. In your case, it's {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239}.
3. Right click on it then select permission.
4. Click Advance and change the owner to administrators. 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*.
Note: *AppID* is the ID that appears in your event viewer. In your case it's {316CDED5-E4AE-4B15-9113-7055D84DCC97}.
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, 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}

and APPID

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