If you import a LMHOSTS file from a floppy, and remove the floppy before setup completes, you receive:
COM+ Setup Error
Sub-component COM+ raised an exception while processing the OC_COMPLETE_INSTALLATION setup message. ...\ccompluscore.cpp (line 464)
ERROR CODE = 0x80110801 Setup failed to initialize the COM+ catalog.
COM+ will not operate correctly without the catalog.
The error is caused by the working directory being set to the floppy and the floppy has been removed.
To workaround this issue:
- DO NOT remove the floppy until setup is complete, OR
- Import the LMHOSTS file from a local partition.
