Automating DCOM Security Settings

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.

Dcom Settings can be done by creating package.But could you explain some more in detail.What exactly you need.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
