Access Permissions to the registers files in a OLE Object.

I have an application, that is a DCOM Server (OLE),I use in this application the TRegIniFile class to access an register file for load parameters.

If I create an instance of this ole object in another Delphi application there is no problems. The problem is the following:

I need to create the OLE object in an Active Server Page,
when I do it there is an error, this last is that the OLE object can't access the register file because it don't has permission.

What I can do ?

The DCOM server is probably set up to run as the launching user. (To confirm this, run dcomcnfg.exe and check the Identity tab of the Properties dialog for your DCOM server.)

When launching via active server page, it is most likely running as IUSR_<servername>. This is the default guest account set up by IIS, as is limited to what resources it can access. (unless you have changed the security for the asp page)

To make this work, you can use dcomcnfg.exe to change the identity to a specific user. (this would be the simplest)There are other methods available, for more info check MSDN web site on article Q201843.
