server.create object failed error when trying to upload images in ASP

I'm trying to build a page that will upload images, save the info to a database and resize the image. I'm following a tutorial at:


When I try to run the page I get error message:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'
Server.CreateObject Failed
/uploadtest/process.asp, line 27

Here is the code up to line 30

<!--#include file="Connections/conupload.asp" -->
Dim reupload
Dim reupload_numRows

Set reupload = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
reupload.ActiveConnection = MM_conupload_STRING
reupload.Source = "SELECT * FROM Images"
reupload.CursorType = 0
reupload.CursorLocation = 2
reupload.LockType = 1

reupload_numRows = 0
'The database connection is made using OLE DB 4.0
'An alternative method using ODBC is included but remarked out.

'DataConnection = "filedsn=" & DirPath & "access.dsn;DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("ImageDB.mdb")

'DataConnection = "PROVIDER=MICROSOFT.JET.OLEDB.4.0;DATA SOURCE=" & Server.MapPath("ImageDB.mdb")

'The following line creates the upload object, assuming the trial version is used
'Use "csASPUpload.Process" for the full version.
Set Upload = Server.CreateObject("csASPUploadTrial.Process")     <-------------------------------------------


The file "csASPUploadTrial.dll" is in the same folder as the process.asp file.

Can anyone point me in the right direction here. Thank you.

You may copy "csASPUploadTrial.dll" to Windows System folder and register it via this command in Dos Prompt:

regsvr32 csASPUploadTrial.dll

and then try your scripts again.
hi, just register the component using
start -> run->
regsvr32 "c:\....\...\csASPUploadTrial.dll"

c:\....\...\csASPUploadTrial.dll means your component path like c:\Intepub\..  where to component is residing
