Serviced component assemblies are not exported to an .msi package when you export a COM+ application that contains a 32-bit version of a serviced component from a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

Applies to: Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1

Symptoms


Consider the following scenario:
  • You are running a Microsoft Component Services (COM+) server application on a computer that is running a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or of Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • The application contains a 32-bit version of a serviced component.
  • You export the application as Application proxy.
In this scenario, serviced component assemblies are not exported to an .msi package. Therefore, if you install the package on other computers, a COM+ client application may not work.

Cause


The issue occurs because the API for the COM+ application export tries to read a 64-bit version of a registry subkey instead of the Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit (WoW64) registry subkey even for a 32-bit version of a component .dll file.
