Hello
I am trying to upload an image on my local pc to my local host server.

It fails with the message.
I have two domains I have tried with the same result!

Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01AD)
ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.Dictionary'
/boatsforsalenow/ScriptLibrary/incPureUpload.asp, line 40

Previously I tried to cure this by following the instructions at
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/scrrun.htm and then at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=C717D943-7E4B-4622-86EB-95A22B832CAA&displaylang=en

After that it all seemed to go wrong.

I am a bit nervous about trying that again and wonder if there are any other suggestions or comments.
I have made a restore point at this stage!
Thank You
John

Well I did eventually download from the above page again to establish whether
Windows Script 5.6 for Windows XP and Windows 2000 was upsetting the database connctivity or not.

It definitely is
A soon as I install the file
I get the error I had previously
Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0201'
Invalid Default Script Language
The default script language specified for this application is invalid

Can any one assist please?

Many Thanks
John

Have a look at this site, it's someone with the same error.

Be sure to back up your registry however before attempting the fix that worked for them.

I eventually located the problem. There wa a .dll missing and the following page explains the answer.
