{61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} – “The update cannot be started because the content sources cannot be accessed” error in Sharepoint

I was trying to install moss 2007 on one of the rebuilt box and came across strange error. I googled it found out that actually the error CLSID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} is related to what i found in registry:

  • Open  Start–>Run–>regedit.exe and goto HKCR->CLSID and search for the GUID
  • With the registry editor open, ensure that your cursor is on the computer at the beginning of the tree (make sure you are not in the middle of some previous edit session in the registry editor).
  • Edit–>Find and paste in the GUID. It’ll stop at the application entry – and you will want to note the application name on the right side pane. In this example, it was the IIS WAMREG admin service that popped up.

This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool which is present in “Administrative Tools”; Follow the steps to sort out the error

  • Now, open Component Services (typically, from the server – Start–>Administrative Tools–>Component Services), expand Component Services, Computers, My Computer, DCOM Config. Scroll down and find the application (IIS WAMREG in this case)
  • Right-Click–>Properties and select the Security tab. You’ll have some options here – the first block Launch and Activation Permissions – ensure that the Customize radio button is selected, and click Edit. Now, add your service account – giving it launch and activate – and in some requirements – remote launch / activate permission
  • Restart IIS and continue on with no error
