I have a 2 server Citrix PS4.0 farm with published applications. I am running an application that uses an activeX component with a (manually) registered wodsftp.dll. If I launch the application from one server (this is a virtual server cloned from the original) I can run the application with no problems. If I try to run the application as anything other than a domain admin account I get the error 429 ActiveX can't create object and the application hangs to the point that I have to administratively kill it. I have compared registry entries for all java versions and confirmed that the versions are the same on both machines and GP is applied across the board to the Terminal server computers.

I have been fighting with this for some time and really could use some HELP!!!

if it works with a domain admin account only this sounds like a permissions problem.  I would use regmon and filemon to see what files/registry entries are being access when launching the program.  You probably just need to adjust the NTFS permissions on a particular file/directory

Filemon: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/FileAndDisk/Filemon.mspx
Regmon: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/SystemInformation/Regmon.mspx

ProcessMonitor is actually the newest version that replaces the 2 above so you can use that as well if you prefer: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/SystemInformation/processmonitor.mspx

Hello mgcIT

Thank you the Process Monitor initially was a bit to try to figure out as I had not used either tool, but yes THANK you there was a permission error in a deeply buried registry key.  All is working great now.  Amazing weeks of frustration (on and off) and it was so simple.  Thanks for your help!
