okay, i created a samlle qctivex exe to get centralised properties of a "server"
My app cannot load the remote server..it give me access denied

If you start the exe on the server manually, can you login then ?

Did you build the ActiveX EXE with Remote Server Files and did you set a reference to these in your client app ?

thanks for all the info, but i still can't get it to work.
i started the server manually and again i received the permission denied.
As far as trusted domains. i don't really have a domain, it is a workgroup.
i will try the dcom cnfg again later today and perhaps i will find something i had previously overlooked.#

regards
