The remote procedure call failed.

The Setup:
=======
Win Server 2k
SQL 2k
IIS 5

set objComp = server.create("myCompents.TestCom")
rtnCode = objComp.DoSomthing(........)


I keep on getting this error 800706BE on the line where i call objComp.DoSomthing(.....), now the components work on the live system but they dont want to work on any test system i've tried.

I took over this project when someone left and now i cant get them to work on a test system. Please i need help this is driving me insane. I'm doing something wrong but i dont know what it is.

Well I created a qucik ActiveX DLL to see if I could maybe re-create the problem that you where having  - I even called it the same as yours - but I could not get mine to produce the error that you received.

To that end I found a post on EE that might (might) help - (an answer was accepted)....
