I developed a activex dll and used it in an asp page. I am getting the following error
Error Type:
Project1(0x80010108)
Automation error The object invoked has disconnected from its clients.
Can anyone throw light on what could be wrong?
The same dll worked fine before. I am using windows 2000 and vb6.

Are you using the msinet control or Crystal reports in the dll?

Crystal reports could cause this problem as well if there is a circular reference to it.
