World Wide Web Publishing Error 87

Sometimes ago, I’ve encountered an error when starting the IIS web server. After some looking inside Event viewer, I saw that the World Wide Web Publishing service was unable to start due to the Error 87: The parameter is not correct.

Looking over the Internet, I found all kinds of solutions from resetting the Windows sockets (using netsh winsock reset) to reinstalling the Windows (I hate this last solution! :) ).

But I’ve remembered that I had a problem with the DTC service when invoking a service and I had to modify some registry. The correct registry are:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"DCOM Protocols"=hex(7):6e,00,63,00,61,00,63,00,6e,00,5f,00,69,00,70,00,5f,00,\





Hope this helps someone/stops him to reinstall Windows! :)
