Install DCOM server components onto W2K & XP

Hi all,
I'm going nuts!
I have a few DCOM server components running smoothly on an NT4.0 server. Recently I've been trying to migrate them onto W2K and XP servers, without success.

I do as usual:
1.- Install EXE component on the server
2.- Run DCOMCNFG.EXE and grant access & launch permission to everyone
3.- Configure clients to point to the new server
4.- Run client applications: I always get a "Permission denied" error

I've checked the event log and I can see the client machines logging in as "Guest", and I've explicitly granted permissions to "Guest" users at the server, both at access and startup levels, but it doesn't seem to work. I've tried connecting from within the domain or from the outside... nothing.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you all in advance,
