Q. I've turned auditing on. With the remote admin/OCX component I'm getting
Failed on creation from object context: CoCreateInstance in the event log.

A. This is a permissions issue.

The top 3 solutions for initial permissions issues are as follows:

  • Make sure the directory you are trying to protect with AuthentiX is not protected by NTFS. Use Windows NT (2000) Explorer (not IE) to go to the directory/folder you are trying to protect with AuthentiX. Right click on it to bring up the Properties/Security/Permissions. Grant Read and Execute rights for everyone.
  • In the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) IIS settings for your site/directory, check that Allow Anonymous is ON, Basic Authentication is OFF, NTCR/Integrated/Digest Authentication can be ON or OFF.
  • Make sure the Flicks installation directory and all its subfolders and files have Full Control for Everyone. Also make sure the root directory has Read and Execute permission for IWAM_machinename and IUSR_machinename.
You can lock down the permissions by experimentation later, but these are the most common things required to start up.
