Intranet server crash

Our NT4 Server running IIS 4 (and our intranet) died yesterday.  It was a mixed blessing as it was one of the last NT4 servers, but I had wanted to migrate it to the new Windows 2003 Server in stages.  Now I get to do it all at once.  I was able to look at a backup and I have all of the data from the server.  What I don't know is how to recreate the website on the 2003 server.  After copying the data over and going through the "new website" wizard, I am getting this error:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'

Server.CreateObject Failed

/index.asp, line 35

800401f3

Since this is a production server, any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated and awarded appropriately.  Thank you!

ASP files can be edited using something as simple as Notepad, they are in plain text format.

Look the file up on your HD using the Search function in Windows, and then open it up with Wordpad,
so you can see what line you are on. Go to line 35 and presto!.

If you want, you can paste this line here, so I can see it.

On that specific line (35 on file /index.asp) there is an object creation.

That is what you do with ASP command Server.CreateObject.

Look for the name of the object (which is the XXX in Server.CreateObject(XXX.MMM), MMM is the class
name of the object being used).

Then, you should have this object registered on your Server (Look it up doing a Find on your Registry).

If you don't have it, locate the file on your HD (or on your Backup), and do a

"regsvr32 object_whatever.dll"

This will register the object on your Registry, and make it ready to use.

Juan, Thanks for the reply!!  

I know this sounds dumb, but how do I modify/view the index.asp file?  The company that built this site 8 years ago took the docs with them.  So I have no idea how to get into that file.

Thanks to you, the day has been saved!  Great work.  I found the dll file you were talking about, registered it and made a couple of minor changes to the website and we are back online.  Thank you so much for your help.
