dcom question

I am having a problem getting a dcom control to work in an app and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas. The app is in win95 and I have an activex exe sitting on an
NT box I am trying to set up through DCOM. When I try\
to run the app I get a 429 error (cannot create object).

The app references a tlb file rather than a specific control. When I use the application wizard I add a reference to the
vbr file for the activex exe and set the remote location to the name of the server with the control (Server13). The exe is installed on the server and I have set up dcomcnfg to give everyone full rights.

I also have rights on the server and I can reference the
remote object directly in my project and get it to run on
the client. I just cant get it to run remotely. I think that covers everything. Does anyone have an idea what I might be missing?

Do you have DCOM95 installed on the client?  That is usually not installed with a regular install and is required to do any DCOM stuff on win95.  NT has it built in.

The other thing to try is make sure your class is set to the write type (not private but rather Multiuse, globalmultiuse, etc.)

I did a search and its not there. That might explain it

Where do I pick it up? Is it in the MSDN CD's?
