VB6 IIS Application

I have created a very basic IIS application in VB6. It works fine on Win95 with PWS. If I ftp the files across to my web site, I get the error :

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'

Server.CreateObject Failed

/macey/mcfarlane/scripts/wcdemo.asp, line 8

Invalid class string

Can I just ftp all the files(dll's, asp's and runtimes) or do I need to get my isp to configure his NT server to handle the files????

Thanks in advance

Your ISP is presumably running IIS and will have to make sure of the following:

1) The virtual directory that the files will be copied to exists on the Web Server!

2) Virtual directory has the "scripting" option enabled in IIS

3) Any classes in your dll's are set to multiuse

4) Any dll's used are registered on the Web Server - search the registry or run "regsvr32 yourdllname.dll" from the path where the dll resides

You may also consider using the Visual Basic Package and Deployment Wizard to deploy to the Web Server? If so search for "Deploying your IIS Application" in MSDN Help.

Hope this helps

Thanks turboelf,

I have now got to this step and I agree that I should use PDW so I don't have to email my ISP everytime he needs to register my dll's for me.

I have now got the problem of finding a copy of posting acceptor v2 on the net as I don't intend to buy a copy of visual studio 6 as well as already having a copy of vb6 and visual c++.

Any ideas?

Please email me at paulmacey@hotmail.com if you could possibly help.

Enjoy your points ;)
