If the COM+ Event System fails to start, the technical information about the error is added to the Event Log. Windows XP startup should proceed, but a message box should be displayed informing the user that the EventSystem service has failed to start.
COM+ Event System depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service.
The System Event Notification depends on the COM+ Event System service.
