I had the same error a while back, and it was due to me not giving the progid properly. Also I think you need to use the set keyword. This is the syntax I use:
set myobject = server.createobject("mydll.arrays")

the mydll.arrays bit is what appears in the progid in the registry for my dll. Hope this helps.

set myobject = server.createobject("progid")
myvar = myobject.method("parameters")
