COM Security Setup

If you are using the COM API, you also need to take these additional steps described below to make the easyPDF SDK objects run properly on server-side environment.

If you are using the .NET/Java native API, you may skip over these steps.

Configure COM Security setting

  1. Log on to the computer as the Administrator.
  2. From Control Panel, launch Administrative Tools.
  3. From Administrative Tools, launch Component Services.

    Note that some versions of Windows, for example Windows Vista, do not have a Component Services icon in the Control Panel. In this case, you may bring up the Component Services dialog by selecting "Run..." from the Start menu and invoking "comexp.msc" or "%windir%\system32\comexp.msc".

    On Windows 8, 8.1 and Server 2012, hit the Windows key and start typing Component Services, then hit Enter.



  4. Find the Component Services icon on the left, and expand the tree until you reach My Computer. Right click and choose Properties.



  5. Click the COM Security tab. Click the Edit Default button for the Launch and Activation Permissions to open the Launch and Activation Permission dialog.




  6. Verify that at least following users/groups are listed in the access permissions, or add them if they are not listed. The users/groups required differ depending on your version of Windows:

    Windows 2000, Windows XP:

    a.    Administrators
    b.    ASP.NET Machine Account (ASPNET) *
    c.    Internet Guest Account (IUSR_<machinename>)

    Windows Server 2003:

    a.    Administrators
    b.    ASP.NET Machine Account (ASPNET) *
    c.    Internet Guest Account (IUSR_<machinename>)
    d.    NETWORK SERVICE

    * This account exists only if ASP.NET is installed on the computer.

    Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, Windows Server 2008, 2012:

    a.    Administrators
    b.    SYSTEM
    c.    IUSR
    d.    IIS_IUSRS
    e.    NETWORK SERVICE



  7. Make sure that each user/group is allowed to launch (both Local Launch and Local Activation must be turned on), and then click OK .

  8. Click  OK again to close the My Computer Properties dialog.

  9. Close Component Services.
