Hi

 We recently moved our web server. Now we have problem in accessing a particular section of one of our website. All the sites are working fine except one. We are getting the error message "server object error" please refer the below MS link for exact error message. I downloaded site server sp 4 but when i was trying to install it says there is no site server3.0 installed. Is there any solution??

That link may be a little misleading. Do your pages that don't work create and use any objects ? (i.e. any calls to Server.CreateObject)

Yes it create and use objects and the code is somthing like this ...       Set objDLL = Server.CreateObject("ASPFormat.Format")

Then it sounds like the ASPFormat component has not been installed on your new server.

Hi

The ASPFormat.Format object refers to the dll:

<!-- METADATA TYPE="TypeLib" FILE="C:\Program Files\Common Files\system\ado\msado15.dll" -->

This has been registered on the server, but we still get the following error:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'

Server.CreateObject Failed

800401f3

This has just happened since we migrated to a new web server. I was sure we needed to just register the DLL, but that doesn't seem to have made a difference ...

any more ideas would be great, thanks for the feedback so far

I don't think it does.

If you go here:

And download the support files, you'll find an ASPFormat.dll in the Zip. I think this is probably what you need.

Hi carl_tawn

Thanks very much for that, it's solved the problem.

Oddly enough, it was working perfectly fine before with just the reference to the msado15.dll (on our previous server). Now it just doesn't work. Add the reference to the other dll, and hey ...

Thanks again for your help
