I have a VB.Net Application that merges WordPerfect Templates with the Data from the form. It uses the "WPWIN13.tlb" Type Library.

This application is working fine on my PC. But when I move it to Citrix Server, it gives the following error when I try to merge a Wordperfect Document with its Data File: "Cannot create ActiveX component". Please help!

How to remove this error?

Thanks for the reply.

The type library is on the Citrix Server. I can see that in the correct place.

 I am assuming that all the dependent files must be copied when I installed my application on Citrix Server.

Is there a way I can check the dependency of this type library on Citrix Server?

just copying the files won't do the trick. You need to register them as well. If you have an actual installer for the .NET app then this should have taken care of most of them. To register an activeX control, use the regsrv32 command:
regsvr32 c:\activeX\mycontrol.ocx

Another thing that you might want to check is that Word perfect (and any other COM program that this app is dependent on) is installed correctly on the server, with all the same options as your machine, otherwise the COM interface might be throwing this error.
