Error 2593F8B9-4EAF-457C-B68A-50F6B8EA6B54 doesn’t briefly ignite any damage to the function. But if you anyway want to resolve the problem, be cautioned and make sure to avoid mistakes while editing the registry. Any minor mistake may implicate complications in the system.

First, open the registry editor by pressing W8K + R, followed by putting the regedit in the Run dialog. Then navigate the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{F72671A9-012C-4725-9D2F-2A4D32D65169} registry key in the registry editor window.

Find the {F72671A9-012C-4725-9D2F-2A4D32D65169} key and right-click on it to select permissions and the Advanced button after that.

On the Advanced security settings, you’ll learn that the current owner is TrustedInstaller. Proceed with the change link option and right away take the ownership.

Subsequently, you’ll be redirected to the permissions sheet. Select your account, then the system listed under Group, and finally the Allow box against Full control.

Now you have total control, with the system allowing you to manage any further registry key and activities. Press apply and click.

Likewise, take the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8D8F4F83-3594-4F07-8369-FC3C3CAE4919} key’s ownership, take ownership, and get control for yourself and SYSTEM. Hit W8K + R and then find the dcomcnfg in the Run dialog box. After this, press enter, and component services will be opened.

Now at the component services, proceed with console root, then components services, then my computer, then DCOM Config, click View in details.

Spot {F72671A9-012C-4725-9D2F-2A4D32D65169} and right click to select properties.

Type SYSTEM on the object name (select users or groups), followed by clicking check names. There you’ll find SYSTEM is underlined and also connected to the SYSTEM object. Click OK.

Go to group or user names again in the Launch and activation permission and then select SYSTEM. Check the Allow box, click OK, and that’s it!

Exit the registry editor to reboot your device. Few hours or after a couple of restarts, the error will cease popping up.


To fix the 6B3B8D23-FA8D-40B9-8DBD-B950333E2C52 error, open Regedit, and then navigate the flagged keys and start changing their ownership. Get full control permission to the key owner that you have just corrected.

Move to the DCOM Config and take off editing the security properties you’ll find in the WPN Srumon Server. That will give you the launch and activation permissions. Lastly, reboot!


To fix error 9E175B6D-F52A-11D8-B9A5-505054503030, follow the steps you did to fix the other 10016 errors, first by editing registry, changing permissions, taking ownership, and getting full control. But make sure that you change the ownership to trusted installer after again.

After this, reach the component services from Administrative tools. From the component services, open Computer, my computer, and then DCOM Config. After this, click on search and then right-click on it to ‘properties’ and lastly, the Security tab. Edit the security permissions on Launch and activation permissions.

Over the Registry Editor, right-click on {C2F03A33-21F5-47FA-B4BB-156362A2F239} and then select permissions and then click administrations. Check the Full box control, followed by allowing click advanced. There, in the security settings, follow with the change, type administrators, and OK. This is all for the CLSID.

After the security settings part, open the component services (as an administrator). Then in the component services, go to computers, my computers, and DCOM Config. Down you’ll have the immersive shell and click properties.

Click customize from the Launch and Activation permissions and edit. Again, in the Launch and Activation window, click Add, type the local service, and OK. Then check Local Activation and OK. Conclude by rebooting your computer, and you have it solved!
