  • Andrew, were you able to get this resolved? I am seeing a similar issue attempting to re-deploy OCS on a freshly built SP2 + latest updates machine, with the one thing that I had deactivated and removed the previous OCS RTM machine in the same domain.

    Fortunately this is not in front of a customer....yet...

  • I too am having the same problem...

  • I had the same problem!


    I resolved it by uninstalling IIS => install the IIS again => uninstall OCS web components => continue setup again where the error occurs (OCS web components will be installed again) => finish

  • I am getting the same error during the install. Was anyone able to solve this?

    The details of my error are:

    Activate Web Components Server Log: LC Web Components[2008_09_26][15_30_40]_Activate.html
    [0xC3EC796C] One
    or more errors occurred during execution of the wizard; the wizard was
    unable to complete successfully. Please check the log file for more

    I am installing it on a VMware Server image running Windows 2003 server 32 bit. On that machine I do not have Exchange installed but I do have Sharepoint installed and Visusal Studio 2005.

    The log file in the above mentioned .html showed this failure:

    Activate Web Components Server IIS Virtual Directory Setting   ADsPath: IIS://manpower-edwin.manpower.dev/W3SVC/1/ROOT/etc/place/null/filetree

    I resolved the first part of the error by going to IIS - Web Sites - Default Web Site - Abs - Properties - Directory Security - Authentication and access control (Edit) - Allow Anonymous Access.


    I am trying to figure out what the "Group Membership" is about.

  • I don't know what the "Group Membership" is about - there are other posts that suggest uninstall - Web Components Server, uninstall IIS, re-install IIS, and then re-install Web Components server (webcomponents.msi).


    Since it wasn't easy for me to uninstall and re-install IIS (due to other apps that tied into it), I just un-installed and then re-installed the Web Components Server and that worked for me.
