When opening the Component Services in the Microsoft Management Console (MMC), an error is produced like the one displayed below:
An error occurred while processing the last operation. Error code: 8004e00f - COM+ was unable to talk to the MSDTC. The event log may contain additional troubleshooting information.
The Application event log may contain:
Event Type: Error Event Source: MSDTC Event Category: LOG Event ID: 4163 Description: MS DTC log file not found. Event Type: Error Event Source: MSDTC Event Category: TM Event ID: 4185 Description: MS DTC Transaction Manager start failed. LogInit returned error 0x2. Event Type: Error Event Source: MSDTC Event Category: SVC Event ID: 4112 Description: Could not start the MS DTC Transaction Manager.
These errors are a result of a missing or damaged MS DTC (Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator). Make sure that all Resource Manager that are coordinated by MS DTC have no "in-doubt" transactions.
To fix the problem:
1. Use Windows Explorer to expand the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dtclog folder.
2. If a Msdtc.log file exists, rename it to Msdtc.old.
3. Opens NOTEPAD and save an empty file as %SystemRoot%\System32\Dtclog\Msdtc.log.
4. Open a CMD prompt and type: msdtc -resetlog and press Enter.
