EventID 10016 The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID …. and Sharepoint 2013

An annoying error that used to be generated in thousands on our production server

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM
Date: 31.7.2014 0:52:05
Event ID: 10016
Task Category: None
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: FS\r7022-040001
Computer: S7022AP4201.fs.mfcr.cz
Description:
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}
and APPID
{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}
to the user TEST\user SID (S-1-5-21-3043588770-2694071417-673251328-9138) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool

was be fixed as follows:
1) Use the CLSIS/AppId from the event to find a registry key using regedit. (Mine was HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}.) Note the default value under that key. (Mmine was IIS WAMREG admin Service.)
2) Take ownership of the key and give it to the Administrators group (original owner was TrustedInstaller). Make sure the Administrators group has FullControl permissions on the registry key.
3) Run Component services mmc snap-in (dcomcnfg)
4) Open Computers > My Computer > DCOM Config > IIS WAMREG admin Service
5) Go to Properties, Security, Launch and Activation Permissions, Customize, Edit
6) Add all the accounts that Sharepoint server complained about in the eventlog and grant them Local Launch and Activation Permissions.
