Hi there. I recently made some changes to a com object and recompiled. Uploaded to the machine, deleted the previous object from com+ and remade it. Then i set up as normal. Now when I try instansiate the object in ASP I get the following error in the ASP:#

Error Type:
Server object, ASP 0177 (0x8007007E)
8007007e
/Home/Events/bookconf.ASP, line 101

Wehre the code is
Set ObjEvent = Server.CreateObject("ArkEvents.cEvent")

Not much info... but in event viewer I get the following errir in App log:

During installation of this component into a COM+ application a registry value was changed from its original value. If you are experiencing activation problems with this component then please check the registry values.C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\ArkEvents.dll
ArkEvents.cEventStand\Clsid


Process Name: RunDll32.exe
Comsvcs.dll file version:  not loaded

I have no idea whats going on. Someone help please!!!!!!!

It looks like the ClassId is still associated with the older version. Make sure the old version is fully remove and the new version is properly installed and registered.


Start -> Run -> RegSvr32 c:\yourcom.dll

Make sure you set from VB

menu Project->Properties->Component tab->version compatibility to binary compatiblility
Also make sure in general tab,
check unattended execution and retained in memory
