I am getting the dredded "ActivX component cannot create object" using the following code on a Win95 machine,  Win200/NT are O.K.  I'v included the reference to msoutl9.olb and tried both linking and non-linking the reference.  Any ideas?

Dim o1 As Outlook.Application
Dim e1 As Outlook.MailItem
Set o1 = New Outlook.Application
Set e1 = o1.CreateItem(olMailItem)
e1.To = "address@test.com"
e1.Subject = "Test"
e1.Body = "Test Outlook"
e1.Send
Set e1 = Nothing
MsgBox "Mail Sent"

I guess that you know that Outlook needs to be installed for the code to be working. Only including the msoutl9.olb will not provide the functionality for the application, it's only for making the references to the typelibs available.

Wasn't aware of that "minor" detail.  Let me try that.

I installed OL 97 and get the same error.  However, one thing to note is the development PC has OL 2000.  Will the OL 9 object library work with Win95 and Win2k?

if you use
Dim o1 As Outlook.Application
then you will need the same version (binary compatible) of outlook installed.
Note that some "same" version with different languages (french, german etc) sometimes are NOT binary compatible with the main english verison.

Note that OL2k is not compatible with OL9x etc
