[Solved] AADSync – AADConnect : Unable to start Azure AD Connect Synchronization Rules Editor

This week I had an installation of AADConnect / AADSync, which was not able to show the Synchronization Rules

In the bottom left corner you see a little button ‘View errors’ .

Here you’ll see the errors


Retrieving the COM class factory for remote component with CLSID {835BEE60-8731-4159-8BFF-941301D76D05} from machine ADFS33 failed due to the following error: 80070005 ADFS33.

at System.Management.Automation.Internal.PipelineProcessor.SynchronousExecuteEnumerate(Object input, Hashtable errorResults, Boolean enumerate)

at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.LocalPipeline.InvokeHelper()

at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.LocalPipeline.InvokeThreadProc()

In the Eventlog you’ll see :

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

{835BEE60-8731-4159-8BFF-941301D76D05} and APPID {835BEE60-8731-4159-8BFF-941301D76D05}

to the user Domein\Admin SID (S-1-5-21-52429900-555369204-6498272-4455) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.


Start the program as an Administrator !
