System runtime interop.services error running a DTS package from VB.NET 2005 app.

I have a vb.net 2005 app that accesses a sql server.  We are using sql sqerver 2005 and the computers have windows xp sp2 on them.  When the app gets to a procedure that runs a dts package I get the following error:

System runtime interop.services.comexception (0x80040154):Retrieving the COM Class factory component with CLSID {10020200-EB1C-11CF-AE6E-00AA004A34D5} Failed due to the following error: 80040154, at WindowsApplication1.frmMainForm.RunDTS(etc)

It works on my machine so I am assuming there is something that needs to be installed on the client machine.  Any ideas?

You might want to do a setup project it will, tell you all the reference needed, and install them.

Did you install Sql Server Enterprise edition on that machine, it might be that if i remember DTS can be use only with that version. Not the express.
