I have recently repackaged an application (IpassConnect) that uses DCOM. In total there are 7 DCOM entries created by this application, i run dcomcnfg to confirm. When i install the application logged in as a local administrator, it works fine. However, when i distribute the msi using group Policy the DCOM entries are missing all together. Is there any known issues with Group Policy and the distribution of DCOM objects.

The application also creates 2 services which fail to be created correctly under Group Policy. Any ideas ??

Did you install it Per User or Per Machine?
The DCOM info could be stored in HKCU and in such case a repair would be required for the user profile and HKCU to be installed. Use Active Setup if no entrypoint can provide the self-heal to occur.

We do a Per User install of applications in our environment

Deploying the msi using the Workstation Policy resolves the problem. Using the User Policy does not work.

Services are by nature per-machine, which is probably why you can't deploy via User policy. And if any of the controls are shared, they should be installed per-machine, not per-user.
