VB6 DLL called from IIS - Need to configure DCOM

Hi Folks.

Ok - I have written a VB6 DLL (that has some MS Office components within it). I want this to be accessed via a ASP page, however when the DLL is run I want it to look like the Administrator was running it to get around some of the permissions and access denied issues.

It will be running on a Windows 2003 Server.

Can anyone tell me what settings to use in the DCOM area to ensure that this happens.

Many many thanks

Dave

Still need help with this?
If so, your best bet is to just host the DLL in Component Services and set up the Component Service Application with the permissions you need.
Let me know if you need the details on how to do this.

Hi HTH
Ok - Yes that is what I want to do.  I know about creating a component etc but my biggest issue has always been the permissions section
When someone uses IIS they are automatically logged on as IUser_xxx, however that account has very limited access.
I want to ensure that when the component is run - the component is run as administrator so to get around anything issues.
 
Many thanks
