ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.Dictionary'

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

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.
