You possibly need to reboot.. The error you posted typically means that your ActiveX component (dll) is not registered on your web server.  By looking at the MS page you listed, it mentions that Office has to be installed on the web server as well.. Is that the case here?

I installed office xp on the server and all is working great. I can create excel spreadsheet on the fly and save on client computer.
