If this service is not started, any DCOM-related services cannot start. Therefore, the Windows Firewall Service cannot start if the DCOM Server Process Launcher service is not started. This is because the Windows Firewall Service requires the DCOM component. Other services such as the Network Connections service and the COM+ Event System service are also dependent on the DCOM component.
Because the DCOM Server Process Launcher service is new, any security templates must be modified to support the new service. For example, security templates such as Group Policy settings or configuration scripts that restrict the DCOM Server Process Launcher service must be modified.
