I had the same problem ... Component Services is available, its just not
visible in the Administrative Tools. From the command prompt (ran as admin),
type in mmc to bring the management console. From there go to File and Select
Add/Remove Snap-in ... from there you will see Component Services ... you can
also add the shortcut to component services to your administrative tools.
The path to component services is "C:\Windows\System32\comexp.msc"
> Is component service (COM+) still available in Windows Vista ?
> I can't find it !
> Kind Regards
