COM - ASP - Server.CreateObject Error - 0177

I have Win 2K professional and IIS 5.0 installed.
I have developed a vc++ 5.0 automation server and registered it. The server componenet uses 'create named pipes' to communicate with other exe running. It reads and writes from and to other exe and gives the data to ASP.

If I use the component in Excel VBA it is working fine. but while using it in ASP vb script it is failing in create object. It gives a error - 80080005 (0177).
What could be the problem..?

The same component I created as inproc and outofproc servers. But it gives the same error.

The above components are working well in ASP scripts in Win NT and PWS.

Is there any bugs to be fixed in IIS 5.0 regarding Com objects..?

hmm did you try to include your component in COM+ and assign an admin account tor un the package?

Start the Component the tree select computers.. applications...right click on it--> new -> application.. now in the wizard click next and select an empty application -> name your package  leave it in server process and click next -> Select the user and enter an account with enough rights to fufill your com jobs (admin account for ex) -> Finish..

now in the tree expand the new package untill you see the component directory-> right click it -> select new component-> in the wizard click next.. you can either install a new component if it's not registred or install a registred one if you already registred your dll (you select the 2nd choice) -> Select your component from the list (internal name displayed) -> Finish..
Have you got the component running under a specific user account in MTS? If not then try setting this up - might solve your problems.
