Resolution

If you are using COM+ components from ASP.NET on a Microsoft Windows 2000 production Web server, use the following methods, in the order presented, to work around these issues:
  • Install Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and the COM+ Hotfix Rollup Package 18.1. To obtain the COM+ Hotfix Rollup Package 18.1, contact Microsoft Product Support Services. Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3) will contain these fixes when it is released.For additional information about the COM+ Hotfix Rollup Package 18.1, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

  • If you are using SQL Server 2000, install SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later.

    For more information about the availability of SQL Server 2000 service packs, browse to the following Microsoft Web site:
  • If you need a fix for MDAC 2.7 performance issues, contact Microsoft Product Support Services. MDAC 2.7 SP1 will contain these fixes when it is released.
  • You must explicitly call the Dispose method on objects that inherit from the System.EnterpriseServices.ServicedComponent class. Under stress, the handle count can increase by up to several thousand (10,000 to 30,000) before being freed if you do not explicitly call Dispose.WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
