I am attempting to add a pre-registered COM component to a blank COM+ application. Each time I click on "import registered components..." the building of the list of pre-registered COM objects crashes. Do I have a corrupted list (catalog). How do I recover it?
I've written in detail elsewhere about how to
rebuild a corrupt COM+ catalog
. Try the tip and see if that works. If it doesn't, then you may have a problem that requires a reinstall of Windows. I'm rather disappointed at how fragile the COM+ catalog can be; one friend of mine had a computer that couldn't be repaired or upgraded to Service Pack 2 because of this problem, and had to reinstall from scratch.
