COM+ unable to talk to the MSDTC

You may experience the COM plus error while installing an application; my personal experience was happened when i try to install .Net web application at the end of the installation.

I’m not sure why I hit such exception, but I suspect this could happen to me may due to uninstall the web application quite often and cause the component script corrupted. With this exception happen there is no way for me to complete the installation and I have to terminate it. What to do next to get it work? I need to uninstall the COM plus component and re-install it. Sound like very complicated, but actually is just a few second effort only. Below is the solution:

1. Copy (msdtc –uninstall) and paste to the command prompt and press ENTER. This action will uninstall the COM plus relevant component.

2. Copy (msdtc –install) and paste to the command prompt and press ENTER. This action will help you re-install the COM plus services.

After re-installing the COM plus services, I can continue the installation without any error popup. This solution work for me but if this cannot resolve your problem then you may need to look for other solution from search engine, and don’t forget share your learning if other solution working.
