The manual procedure follows: This error occurs because of the default security settings used within Component Services with Windows 2003 . Note: All paths listed here are for Windows Server 2003 (RC2). To resolve this issue, change the following setting in component services: Administrative Tools -> Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer -> COM+ Applications -> Mail Enable -> Properties -> Security Tab -> "Enforce Access Checks for this Application". This setting must be turned off. It is disabled by default in previous versions of Windows. A reboot of the server is usually not required when changing this setting. If the above action does not resolve the issue, ensure that the IME_ADMIN account has Read and Execute permission to the files located in the C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\BIN directory.
