ServerXMLHTTP object gives Automation error in VB6

I am developing a project in VB6.

The project has a reference to msxml3.dll.

I am declaring at module level:
Dim serverHTTP As New MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP

Now in one function when I first access serverHTTP:
serverHTTP.setTimeouts resolveTimeout, connectTimeout, sendTimeout, receiveTimeout

at this point, the code tries to create an object of ServerXMLHTTP.

I get a runtime error at this line:
ERROR:-2147221231 Automation error

This error only comes when I install and run my program in Windows 98.
I have verified that msxml3 exists in Windows system directory, and also registered it manually.

How to solve this problem?

Aw man I think you're out of luck here.

ServerXMLHTTP has a minimum requirement of Windows 2000 and up.

"Supported platforms include Microsoft Windows® 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT® 4.0 with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 (or later) installed. ServerXMLHTTP fails on other platforms, such as Microsoft Windows 98."
