Last year, Microsoft implemented hardening changes in DCOM required for CVE-2021-26414.
June 14, 2022, these hardening changes are enabled by default but with the ability to disable them using a registry key.
Microsoft Source

We have received several reports of Access Denied scanning issues since the June 2022 updates released on June 14th.

Patches involved:
  • KB5014697 for Windows 11
  • KB5014699 for Windows 10
If all communicating systems, being the Lansweeper scanning server and targeted devices have received the latest updates, remote scanning should continue to work.

Customer feedback
Our Lansweeper is installed on Server 2012 R2. Once we applied the below Windows updates on this server, Lansweeper functioned correctly again.
