Fixing the "red arrow" problem in component services or error 80070422


This is about an error I've got in a Windows 2012 server: in the “Component services” funcion (COM+), when opening the “com+ applications” a red arrow appears:

And when trying to open the “COM+ Applications” folder, the following error is displayed:

An error occurred while processing the last operation.

Error code 80070422 - The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

The event log may contain additional troubleshooting information.


After reading many articles describing other solutions here, here and here for instance, I've discovered what was going on in my particular case: some services have to be started.

In particular those services that must be configured to run automatically are “COM+ System Application” and “Distributed Transaction Coordinator”.
