Error accessing VB dll(com interop)  in asp.net application

I am referencing a VB6.0  DLL in an asp.net project via com interop.
When accessing the application locally on my machine (windows XP Pro) , it executes fine without any issues.

But when it was deployed on a windows 2003 server, I get the following exception:

System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID {4E42032F-D910-4B4E-A627-7216892D07AC} from the IClassFactory failed due to the following error: 80070005. at _Default.btnProcess_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)

This looks to be a  permissions issue and so I tried granting access to the ASPNET user on the com DLL to see if that resolved the issue  but that did not fix it either.
I then tried granting full permission to ASPNET user on the dll but after that I was getting the following error message&

System.Security.SecurityException at SIBS_BHIS_History.clsHistoryClass.GetLynchHistory(String& varAcct, String& varWkID, String& strXMLValue, Boolean& varDebug) at _Default.btnProcess_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) The Zone of the assembly that failed was: MyComputer

Any help on how to resolve this problem is appreciated...

The only way I got issues like this resolved is by impersonating a user
try something like this in web.config and see if that helps

<identity impersonate = "true" userName = "Domain_Name\IWAM_SERVER" password
="***********************"/>

hope this helps

>>I then tried granting full permission to ASPNET

Just to note, an ASP.Net 2.0 application on IIS6 runs under the "NETWORK SERVICE" account; not ASPNET.

Setting execute permissions on the folder for the NETWORK SERVICE account fixed the issue. Thank you for helping me out on this.
