The big difference with the other error is when you go to the Dcom config, security the option are all greyed out. So you need to do some additional steps:

Choose Advanced

Go to the Owner tab, select the Administrators (DomainAdministrators) group under Change owner to and select the replace owner on subcontainers and objects. Choose OK to close the window. You will return to the permissions window.

Select Administrators (DomainAdministrators) and set Allow Full Control permissions.

After you have done the above settings you go to Administrative Tools – Component Services. Expand Component Services, Computers, My Computer, DCOM Config. Scroll way down till you find the {000C101C-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} icon, right click and choose properties.

Go to the security tab, select customize at Launch and Activation Permissions and choose Edit…
