CreateObject(...); permission denied error on Win XP Professional (wors fine on NT 4)
Posted on 2003-03-15
I am trying to remote control an application via the web with an ASP page.
I am using the command:
set myApp = CreateObject("Cumulus5.Application")
("Cumulus5" is the application name)
I get the following error:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0046)
Permission denied: 'CreateObject'
/asp_test/createApp.asp, line 8
I am using the anonymous web user. I am calling the page locally on my server and am logged in as a user with Administrator rights. Everyone has full access to the application (the actual executable) as well as the tlb file. I tried changing permissions in the Component Services with no success. Currently I am using the Interactive User for that application under the DCOM config.
This is a Windows XP Professional system. The same asp page works fine under a different server running NT 4.0. Also, the page actually seems to start the process for the application (if it's not already running) even though it gives the above error. After accessing the page I can see the process for the Cumulus application running in the Task Manager.
