VB.NET what is the 'Register for COM interop' doing??

Last Modified: 2013-11-25

I have a project made in VB.NET and I need to call it from an old VB6 application using COM.
I checked the 'Registre for COM interop' in the project settings and then I get a dll and a tlb file. I adds the tlb file to my com service and it works fine.

Now to the problem, yesterday I moved this object to a production server and now I cant make any com calls to the component.

I always ends upp with the same error message:

Automation error.
File not found

Does anyone knows what I can do about it, is there anything that I need to do on the server that is already done on mine??
