My Authorize script stop working overnight

This morning when I came to work our customer service department was flooded w/ complain that our cc app stop working.
When tried to run the app, I get this error message

msxml3.dll error '800c0005'

The system cannot locate the resource specified.

I try to do some research, but could not make head and tail of it.
Here are what I know.  

Everything was working up to 3 am today (the time when we record our last cc charge)
I don't think there was any type of update on the server last night.
We know that no one change any part of the script for cc charging app.
It works on our testing server, but the testing server is an w2k server running iis5
Out web server is running w2k3 with iis 6
I install MSXML3 sp 7 and restart the server, but don't seem to do any thing.

Following is the code that's causing the problem

144  set xml = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
145  xml.open "POST", "https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll?" _
146       & data & "", false
147  xml.send ""

The asp error point the error at line 147

I really don't know xml enough to trouble shoot, so any help will be great.

You may want to try using ServerXMLHTTP instead.


    set xml = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0")

Thanks, it worked.
I think an security update that was done last night cause the problem with MSXML3.dll

Would you tell me what's the different between "Microsoft.XMLHTTP" and "MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0"

Essentially XMLHTTP is a client version of the control which uses WinInet under the hood. It has several limitations that cause problems when used server-side (such as a two concurrent connections limit).

If you are using any server-side operations then you should stick with ServerXMLHTTP.
