Automating COM and DCOM setting adjustments

Currently using an AutoIT script to change some default COM and DCOM object permission settings for XP SP2 machines. Unfortunately, this script is hanging during the machine build process due to timing and hardware differences.

I'm looking for a better way to handle this so we're not so dependant on hardware speed and timing.

Is it possible to script in setting changes with a repackager (Wise, Admin Studio, etc.) or by registry merge file?

Specifically I'm trying to configure the default COM Security access permissions limits to allow Remote Access for Anonymous login. Additionally I'm also trying to grant the local USERS group Local and Remote Launch abilities for Launch and Activation Permissions on the Machine Debug Manager DCOM object.

Any thoughts or help is much appreciated.

I definitely wouldn't use AutoIT to do that.

Look at Secedit. Isn't that MSFT's command line tool for editing security settings?

It would probably be possible to do this using Wise, or Installshield but not the best way.

If it's just a reg entry you could do it by merging a .REG file but you'd need to know exactly which entries to place in the file.

I used DCOMPERM.exe to do some settings changes. Seems like vendors are using that for their products that have SP2 issues. It might be worth checking out.

This can be done using VBScripting and WMI.

Google for: wmi Win32_DCOMApplicationSetting
