Access denied Quest ActiveRoles and Event 10016

After the installation of the Quest ActiveRoles MMC component I experienced a error:
Connecting to Administration Service on ‘127.0.0.1’ as ‘GALLIE\QAR’…
Failed to connect to Administration Service on ‘127.0.0.1’. Access is denied.

Access is denied Administration Service  Quest activeRoles

When I looked in to the system log I also found this error with event ID 10016 and source DistributedCOM:Event 10016 DistributedCOM Quest ActiveRoles

The description says:

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Launch permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{9DAAF24F-E27B-4943-99FC-38945006C957}
and APPID
{33ED0DCD-C6DD-459A-A249-711769584310}
to the user GALLIE\dadmin SID (S-1-5-21-3802466219-3841231428-2777747777-1106) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

So it looks like the user doesn’t has the appropriate permissions to start the DCOM server. There are two ways to solve this. The fast but maybe not proffered way  is to disabling User Account Control To the other one is to assign the permissions to the object. To assign the permissions  follow these steps:

  1. Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry value
    HKCR\Clsid\clsid value\localserver32
    The clsid value is the information displayed in the message between the { } the one witch is bold and italic .
  2. In the right pane, double-click Default. The Edit String dialog box is displayed. Leave this dialog box open.
  3. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  4. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Component Services.
  5. In the Component Services snap-in, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and double-click DCOM Config.
  6. In the right pane, locate the program by using its friendly name.
  7. Right-click the program name, and then select Properties.
  8. On the Security tab, in the Launch and Activation Permissions group box, select Customize, and then click Edit.

The Fast way disable the User Account Control:

1.  Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button > Control Panel >  User Accounts
User Account Control

2.  Click Turn User Account Control off by  selecting Never Notify
