How to Use the MS Chart Web Component

I am trying to implement the code found in the MS article "HOW TO: Use Server-Side Charting to Generate Charts Dynamically", which utilizes the Chart Web Component (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q244/0/49.ASP).  When I run the code, however, I get the error message:  "ActiveX component can't create object: 'OWC.Chart'".

I'm totally new to ASP coding, but is this message not similar to the type of message received when you try to run a Visual Basic ap on a workstation which is missing an .OCX file?

If so, what do I need to install on the web server before I can use this object?  If not, what should I do to get it running?

Or, You may just install OCX, Msowc.dll

The ActiveX object needs to be installed client-side.

     VIEWASTEXT></object>

     <Script Language="VBScript">

     Sub Window_OnLoad()

        Dim oChart
        Dim oSeries1, oSeries2
        dim oConst
         
        Set oConst = ChartSpace1.Constants
       
        'Create a new chart in the ChartSpace
        Set oChart = ChartSpace1.Charts.Add
         
        'Add a series of type Column
        Set oSeries1 = oChart.SeriesCollection.Add
        With oSeries1
            .SetData oConst.chDimCategories, oConst.chDataLiteral, _
                     Array("S2T3")
            .SetData oConst.chDimValues, oConst.chDataLiteral, _
                     Array(5485)
            .Type = 1
        End With
         
         'Add a second series of type Line
        Set oSeries2 = oChart.SeriesCollection.Add
        With oSeries2
            .SetData oConst.chDimCategories, oConst.chDataLiteral, _
                     Array("S2T3")

                     Array(5315)
            .interior.color = "#FFFFFF"
            .Type = 1
        End With
         
          oChart.HasLegend = false
          oChart.Axes(0).HasTickLabels = False
          oChart.Axes(1).HasTickLabels = False
          oChart.Axes(0).HasMinorGridlines = False
          oChart.Axes(0).scaling.maximum = 11500
         
     End Sub
