DCOM Security broken just like it was in XP SP2

    When XP SP2 was released alot of applications broke as they did not have
    permissions under DCOM (dcomcnfg)

    Well lo and behold the application I am testing has broken again in Vista
    (RC2) even though I think I have set the DCOM settings correctly.

    Basically the application is calling a remote component I think
    successfully, but it is doing so asyncronously so the component is required
    to have security to call back to the client. So by adding security into
    dcomcnfg for the service account that the component is running as under XP
    SP2 allows it to call back, so why doesn't it in Vista?

    I don't know!

    Is there something else security wise I need to know about?

    Thanks in advance
