Calling VBS from VB; unable to instantiate WSHController..

Hi,

  I need to call a vbscript from my VB application.
The code is as follows. It builds, but gives a run time error for WSHController ( Run time error '429' : Active X component can't create object.)

/***************/
Dim Controller, RemoteScript
Set Controller = CreateObject("WSHController")
Set RemoteScript = Controller.CreateScript("C:\dummy1\testchat\winsock1\server\mapping.vbs")
RemoteScript.Execute
/*********/

Why does this happen? Should I register some DLLs? Which DLL is required for WSHController to work?
When I try to register wscript with 'wscript - regserver', I get an error "Unknown option '-' specified"

Please suggest a solution.
Regards,
 ink
