Windows Server 2008 R2 with WSS 3.0 Error 10016: DCOM IIS WAMReg admin service

Well it was the first time I did a deployment of WSS 3.0 on Windows Server 2008 R2 at a customer... the installation went very well I could say but yet I found out that I had a strange DCOM error. Not the DCOM error I would suspect...

Type: Error
Source: DCOM
Category: None
Event ID: 10016
Description:
The application-specific permissions settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1} to the user DomainName\UserName SID {61738644-F196-11D0-9953-00C04FD919C1}. This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administration tool.

So after searching on BING.com I found out that this has the do with the DCOM IIS WAMReg admin service. Normally you would say that this has to do with the location activation of the DCOM service. But when I found out that the DCOM service couldn't be changed I had to figure out that I had to change some settings. I knew that you can activitate the DCOM service, but Microsoft had to change this DCOM service with the new release of Windows Server 2008 R2. On BING I found out that someone had this error.

So check the blog of Wictor Wilen It saves you a lot of time to figure it out.
