I need to create a package which sets some DCOM security settings on an application

Is this possible?
If yes? What is the easiest and best way to do so ?

Google for 'Win32_DCOMApplicationSetting' which is a WMI class. From memory, I don't think that you can access all the various settings using it but it'll be a start. Also, I seem to remember somebody distributing an ActiveX control which provides an interface.

You could also look at DCOMCNFG's options.

BTW, if this is to switch the LaunchingUser/InteractiveUser ID for the InstallShield driver, there's a script here on AppDeploy. Somewhere.
