I have created ActiveX EXE and registered it as server on machine (MC1) ,
With the help of its .VBR file I have registered it as client on other machine (MC2) and tried to create its instance on that machine (MC2).
 But I failed to create instance of ActiveX server on Machine (MC2) and got Error message 'Remote machine is not available'.

 If any one came across such type of technical situaction, Please drop their valuable suggestions.

 Thanking u in anticipation.

Are you using the createobject command or are you adding it as a reference ??

I think somewhere in the .vbr file you have to edit the machine name..

Just a couple of suggestions..

Or is there a firewall preventing access ??

I've only ever done is using the syntax.

    Dim x As Object
    Set x = CreateObject("mylib.myclass", "myserver")

have you test that the compoment on the server side is correctly installed (depend file, registered), use a vbscript to test it.

if test ok so, have you use the switch -d with the clireg32.exe to use dcom and not remote automation, is not the same.
