GetObjectContext()

I've looked everywhere and tried everything trying to get this working correctly.  I have a component in which I am trying to access the ASP Intrinsic objects (Response,Request,etc..) and I continue to get the 'Object variable or with block variable not set' error message.  I've read about every article and help site that I can find concerning this issue and nothing is helping.  

I even used a Microsoft example exactly from the text and it did not work.  That article is located at: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q230/1/49.ASP
This example just returned the "..." at the end of the variable and there was no object error, but it still did not access the session or application variables correctly.

My component doesn't have a problem creating the object, it just has a problem once I try and set the ASP objects.

I also read that the GetObjectContext() method is not available in Class_Initialize() or Class_Terminate(), so I have that taken into account.  I've registered the component in Transaction Server and all, but still no luck.  

Is it required that GetObjectContext() have to use Transaction Server, or does it just have to have the reference to it?  If it is possible without MTS, I would prefer to keep it that way.

This is a big issue and I would greatly appreciate all ideas anyone has.  Thanks.

GetObjectContext Function
 
Obtains a reference to the ObjectContext that's associated with the current MTS object.
To use the GetObjectContext function, you must set a reference to Microsoft Transaction Server Type Library (mtxas.dll).

I have all of the references setup correctly, both MTS and ASP are referenced.

I just did that yesterday and now again.
My understanding is that the GetObjectContext() in VB does not get the real objectcontext
You have to compile the project to a dll.
You can put that into MTS if you want. But it will screw your registry if you don't do it right afterwards when you go back to Vb and MTS explorer back and forth.
If you can get that ObjectContext into VB and do all the debugging in VB.
Let me know.
But otherwise, that should solve your problem.
