Re: MSDTC errors on Lenovo X1

2018-11-07, 1:43 AM

I have just received advice from support that the issue is directly realted to LenovoSmartStandby service.

 

"I have a fix for DCOM issue which has been tested on the notebook that was sent out to us. This fix for the DCOM will work on fresh installed workstations and the factory image. Once the notebook has been updated to the latest patch, you need to disable a Lenovo
service. The notebook which we received was formatted to the latest Win10 build and all drivers/firmware were installed via the Lenovo System Update utility. Once this was completed I had checked the Component Services and saw that the icon had the Red Arrow with the mentioned error. As a troubleshooting process I started disabling non-windows services individually, restarted the notebook till I found the service which was causing this issue. The service which is causing the issue is “LenovoSmartStandby” once this service was
disabled, we successfully ran the Component Services. I have done some research and determined that disabling the mentioned service does not effect the system performance or battery life."

 

Yet to try myself...

My X1 Gen 6 has been running fine for a week with the Smart Standby Service disabled.   Does anyone know the purpose/functionality of this service?  Web searches regarding it have not helped much.

This error also occurs on the Lenovo Legion Y530, but the Y530 does not have LenovoSmartStandby service.

 

Still looking for a solution...

Lenovo Smart Standby service was also the culprit for me.

 

Here is what i did for powershell which stops and sets the start up to disabled

 

Stop-Service LenovoSmartStandby; Get-Service LenovoSmartStandby | Set-Service -StartupType Disabled

Hopefully we can find a better solution.

I could reproduce this problem with Lenovo Smart Standby and will work on getting a fix.  Sorry I missed this topic in the forum until now.

This issue should be fixed with Lenovo Smart Standby driver version 3.1.139.0

You can get this latest driver as of today in Device Manager -> System Devices -> Lenovo Smart Standby -> Driver tab -> Update Driver.

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

Thank you this fixed the issue for me on a Lenovo X1 Extreme. I can't believe Lenovo hasn't fixed this issue yet. It literally bricked the MSDTC after installing a driver from them, and this in July of 2019.

Re:MSDTC errors on Lenovo X1

I have a Lenovo C940 Yoga, also with Dolby ATMOS speaker system. I have the same problem as everyone else, except for me none of these suggestions seem to work. I have the latest drives (the Dobly one was released March 2020!) but not able to make MSDTC talk to COM+. I have disabled every service that had anything to do with Lenovo, Dolby or Realtek... not just by name but gone through the descriptions of the services as well. I've disabled the Dolby DAX API service, the YMC service (Yoga Mode Control) and anything else that seemed relevant. After restarting none of the "fancy" drivers worked anymore - like the fingerprint reader and Windows Hello - so clearly I've disabled Lenovo very well. Yet, unfortunately, all the problems are still here with Component Services: "Error code 8004E00F - COM+ was unable to talk to the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator". My company's software products use component services and rely on MSDTC. I bought this Lenovo as my "Bring your own computer" under the BYOC scheme and now stuck with not being able to do my job. What else can I try to disable?
