When I attempt to refresh the Roles and Features Summary portions of the Server Manager I get the error "Unexpected error refreshing Server Manager; the component store has been corrupted. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80073712)"probably solution 1
I am running Windows Server 2008 Standard.
Start-> run ( as admin ) : dcomcnfg.exe
make sure it looks like this here - if not, change settings like in this screen :
properties of "My Computer" in DCOM config ( Server manager uses distributed com )
reboot might required ! - Check also Services.msc that dcom and MSDTC ( Distributed Transaction Coordinator ) is enabled and set to automatic -probably solution 2
:also make sure that you have not set some incorrect values for refreshing of Server manager in gpedit.msc , if there is a manual timeout for refreshing given then set it to "not configured" and reboot.
Otherwise see MS Knowledgebase .. they have lots of private Hotfixes for Vista/2008 and Win7 available which you can request for free to be mailes to your email. ( Files that will go into the next SP but are not on Windows Update ) - its an automated solution, no MS employee will contact you . They do it this way so that not the average joe will run windows with unsupported files installed ( too much or wrong hotfixes can cause issues of cause .. its a support matter ) .
