ANTS Profiler and Com+ Library Applications: COMException

I am unable to profile any of my COM+ objects and they throw an exception when I try to invoke them.
They are all written in C#. and are COM+ Library objects. and are not in the GAC.

I'm getting the following error:

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The root transaction wanted to commit, but transaction aborted

D.Workflow.BLL.WorkflowController.ApplyBatchToLiveData is the Com+ object.
[COMException (0x8004e002): The root transaction wanted to commit, but transaction aborted]

    I know that ANTS Profiler can cause applications to run very slowly. Can you check the properties on the component and try increasing the timeout value? The transaction could simply be timing out.
  • You will need to change the properties of your COM+ app to run as a server application otherwise we cannot profile it.

    ANTS Profiler 2.5 now detects that the COM+ Serviced Component that you want to profile is a library application and will no longer let you attempt to profile it. ANTS Profiler can only profile COM+ server applications.
