Error is "automation_SERVER_can't_create_object.

Error 272 ... maybe that's the line number and error 800a01ad.

this usually comes up when a script is trying to create an object that doesn't exist on a server.  For example, someone may be trying to use an upload component, or email component that is not installed

i've also (in fact just ran across it) seen an ASP upload component that requires you to set IUSR_machinename access to read/write/modify on the component itself.

(needless to say, I am not using this component, and have gotten my money back for it, as this is a potential huge security hole)

You have to wonder why R/W/E is required... Makes changes to itself?

Any other suggestions? I've taken these and no go so far.

(The files are there, and write isn't required.)

This error may come if passwords for the IUSR and IWAM accounts are synchronized .

Check this article by MS for synchronizing the passwords
