Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

On a Windows 10 machine, you may encounter Event ID 10016 in your eventlog:

Source:        Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM
Event ID:      10016
Level:         Error
User:          SYSTEM
Description:
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}
and APPID
{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}
to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (via LRPC) running in the application container not available SID. This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

Well, that reminds me of an old blog post of me, back in 2010. Times have not changed since then: it’s still a hell of a job to fix event id 10016. Especially if your an IT-analphabetic. However, this guide will help you out. Don’t worry. Just make sure you have an Administrator account on your pc and you’re good to go! :-)

Step 1:

Open your event viewer, and make note of the ID’s. In my example, the id’s are:
CLSID : {D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}
APPID: {9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}

Also make note of the permission required. In my example, these are:
Local Activation permission is required for user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

It’s OK if your ID’s and permissions differ from mine. Just use your own values and don’t switch APPID and CLSID

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 1

Step 2:
Open your Registry Editor as an Administrator. To do so, click your start menu, type regedit, right click regedit and click Run as administrator

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 2

Step 3
Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160} (again, if your CLSID is different, choose your own CLSID).

To verify you’re in the right location, take a look at the CLSID, and the values within that key. If right, you also see the APPID as a value.
Write down the Application Name. In my case it’s Runtime Broker. You need this name later on.

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 3

Step 4
Right-click the key {D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160} and click Permissions

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 4

Step 5:
In the Permissions window, choose Advanced

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 5

Step 6
In the Advance Security Settings window, click Change

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 6

Step 7
Type your administrator account. Click Check Names to verify. If you don’t know the name exactly, you can used the Advanced button to search for all accounts and choose the Administrator account by double clicking.
Click OK to confirm

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 7

Step 8:
Back in the Advance Security Settings window, click OK to confirm. Notice at the top that the Owner has changed from TrustedInstaller to your administrator account

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 8

Step 9:
Back in the “Properties for {…}” window, select the Computername\Administrators and then activate the “Full Permissions” checkbox.
Click OK to confirm.

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 9

Step 10:
Well, we’re halfway there! Step 3 to 9 described the configuration for the CLSID {…}. Now, we also need to do the same to the APPID {…}

Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47c8-AFC4-AB702511C276} (again, if your APPID is different, choose your own APPID).
You can verify you’re in the good location by checking the application name. This is the same application name asin Step 3.

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 10

Step 11:
Right-click the key {9CA88EE3-ACB7-47c8-AFC4-AB702511C276} and click Permissions

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 11

Step 12
In the Permissions window, choose Advanced

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 12

Step 13
In the Advance Security Settings window, click Change

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 13

Step 14
Type your administrator account. Click Check Names to verify. If you don’t know the name exactly, you can used the Advanced button to search for all accounts and choose the Administrator account by double clicking.
Click OK to confirm

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 14

Step 15
Back in the Advance Security Settings window, click OK to confirm. Notice at the top that the Owner has changed from TrustedInstaller to your administrator account

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 15

Step 16
Back in the “Properties for {…}” window, select the Computername\Administrators and then activate the “Full Permissions” checkbox.
Click OK to confirm.

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 16

Step 17
Almost there! We now have set all permissions to actually change the Local Activiation settings. The following steps will solve your error.

Click Start, type “Component Services“, rightclick Component Services and click “Run as administrator

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 17

Step 18
Navigate to Component Services -> Computers -> My computer -> DCOM Config.
Now, scroll down to the application you have issues with. If you followed my instructions, you wrote the name down at Step 3. In my case, it’s Runtime Broker.
Right click the application name and click Properties

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 18

Step 19
Go to tab Security.
Then choose the appropiate action. If you followed my steps, you have written it down at Step 1
In my case, I had issues with Local Activation, so I choose “Launch and Activation Permissions” set to Customize, and then click Edit…
If you had an error related to “do not grant Access permissions”, you would typically choose “Access Permissions” -> Customize, and then click Edit…

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 19

Step 20 (last step!!)
In Step 1, you also wrote down the account that caused the error, and the needed action to fix event  id 10016.
In my case, it was “SYSTEM” needing “Local Activation” permissions. This may be the same in your case. But it could also be something like “Network service”  or “Local service”.
Click the name that applies to you, and then click the appropriate permission. As you can see in the screenshot below, I have selected the SYSTEM account and I have set “Local Activation” to Allow

Event ID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID 20

Final thoughts about event id 10016

Well, that took me some time to write down. Did it help you solve your problem? Or do you have additional questions? Please, leave a comment. I’d be happy to reply!

Thank you for this guide. I was 70% there but had not logged in as admin to update the security settings in both the regedit module and the dcom.msc. I lost audio (access denied to MS audio device graph server) after some Microsoft updated on July 9, 2019.

Everyone who reads this guide: Access Denied issue was addressed by me in comments farther down, however, I felt I should post it again at the top of the comments section as it is important to note why you get these errors, or are unable to change permissions when you attempt to do so. 1. Access Denied – You MUST run the true admin account to resolve access denied errors. net user administrator /active:yes Logout of your current windows account, and login to the Administrator account (by default no password is set when you enable this account) MAKE SURE you… Read more »

and throughout my permissions, there is an Unknown Account.

Hi
Regarding event id 10016

I still appear to have the same problem. I followed your instructions a couple of times to make sure it was correct.

The only difference is in event log One time it is ( to the user JACKR7\Jack) which is my administrator account. and the next it was (NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM) ?

my issue appears exactly like yours in that it was runtime broker
I also should that in component services under dcom config I have 2 runtimebrokers ?

thanks

Hi! I just ran into a problem of not being able to create a recovery drive (USB). (Win 10 1803 image version 10.0.17763.316) It kept failing. The event viewer threw out DistributedCOM 10016 errors. I looked around the web to learn two apps were claiming the same something. Possibly an APP was looking to sign in to its own 127.0.0.1 network. I had been trying to get Skype and Skype for Business running individually. Skype for Business was trying to sign in at bootup, set on its startup screen. I unchecked ‘run at startup’ and completed the recovery disk procedure.… Read more »

I’d hoped we were on to something, but the program associated with the CLSID doesn’t match the one associated with the APPID in the registry. Neither can I find either of them in Component Services. I’m trying to launch a Word macro-enabled document from Task Scheduler.

hi! Thanks for this tutorial. I ran into a problem. When I attempted to give the Administrators in step 16 full control I received an error saying Permission denied. I can’t figure out why whatever this is won’t let me change permissions. The error is with Adobe Reader creating thumbnails and crashing.

In step 19 when I click “Edit” I get a Windows security popup that says “One or more of the permission entries attached to Registry Value has an unrecognized or application-specific (callback) type and cannot be displayed. The two options are “Remove” and “Cancel”. “Remove” removes the unrecognized and callback permission entries. Should I click “Remove” or is there a problem elsewhere I need to fix? Everything seemed to track until this point. If I click “Cancel” then the Security tab has “SELF” which shows Local Launch and Local Activation already checked (which I’d think is what I want since… Read more »

Per Microsoft, there is no need to fix this error. Read this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4022522/dcom-event-id-10016-is-logged-in-windows-10-windows-server “These 10016 events are recorded when Microsoft components tries to access DCOM components without the required permissions. In this case, this is expected and by design. A coding pattern has been implemented where the code first tries to access the DCOM components with one set of parameters. If the first attempt is unsuccessful, it tries again with another set of parameters. The reason why it does not skip the first attempt is because there are scenarios where it can succeed. In those scenarios, that is preferable.” If… Read more »

Microsoft would be wrong. DCOM errors cause random and unpredictable issues with software, such as crashes, even driver crashes.

Remember Microsoft is the one who caused this error because they are to lazy to fix the permission issues themselves.

DCOM errors can return after major windows updates or cumulative updates.

Suppressing these errors does not fix the software crashes these errors cause.

Dave
Guest

A million thanks.

One note. In my case the “Local Activation” permission were needed for LOCAL SERVICE, not SYSTEM. It was not listed in the Security tab of the Component Service in question (ShellServiceHost, for me). So, I just clicked the Add button and added it to the list, checked Allow for Local Activation, and boom, problem solved.

Let’s make that a million and one thanks.

Step 19 ‘edit’ caused an error with grey buttons. (Using app name & id from step 3) I had to change permissions for the app name (RuntimeBroker) with regedit using the app id as a key with permision & user from step 1. This released the step 19 ‘edit’ error.

Since I am not completely family with editing my Regedit files, I really took care following your advice; messing up Regedit files can create serious system problems, especially change permissions. When I arrived at your FINAL step, running Runtime Broker in ADMIN, I too was unable to make the suggested changes. I received an error stating I was not authorized to make this change (again, I was running Runtime Broker as admin). At this point I am concerned, and like many others my system is still… Read more »

You think you have ownership but, if you’re using Windows 10 you may not have. I was using this information (gratefully) but having no success either. I was not allowed to save permissions and I am supposed to be my own computer’s MASTER. However, I bought a computer with Windows 10 already installed on it and, after days of research I discovered that my administrator user account has to be enabled for me to have administrative rights. Administrative rights to the owner are turned OFF by default. With little else left for me to try I went tip-toe-ing around outside… Read more »

Great guide by the way. I posted it on the MS answers site since those tools don’t have a clue wtf is going on most of the time.

Also suggestion: Make sure you note: These changes have to be done from the True Admin account, because users don’t have the correct permissions to change permissions. More-so on Windows 8 and 10.

The error they get is “Access Denied.” That’s when I figured out the true admin account must be used.

FlukeLSX
Guest
FlukeLSX

The other issue they get is what Neklan stated, where they can’t add an account like SYSTEM, LOCAL SERVICE…etc.

They need to run in the true admin account.

Neklan
Guest
Neklan

Thank you so much for the detailed explanation. The only thing that was different for me was that at the last step. When I had to enable for “SYSTEM” it was not shown, and the add button was disabled. Instead, I chose “use default” for the “Launch and Activation Permissions” then went back into customize/edit and verified that SYSTEM then had the permissions.

“In the second RunTimeBroker Add and Remove were enabled and SELF was present, but I was able to add my account and give it Local Activation permission.”

I have had precisely the same experience as you up until this point, but in neither of my RuntimeBrokers am i able to add or remove. SELF is here for both, and for both, local activatoin is enabled, which is the problem i am trying to solve, so i don’t know what’s wrong here.

Was fine till I got to Step 9. In the “Permissions for Administrators” the Allow column is greyed out, Full Control is selected but still greyed out.
It becomes more of a problem in Step 16; except this time I can select “Full Control”, but when I got to Apply or Ok it I get an “Access Denied” error.
