Server 2008 Application, Runtime error 429?

I'm accustomed to runtime error 429 dealing with automating a MS Office application, but we're running an application dedicated to taking unformatted print-outs from our accounting software and "prettying" them up for invoices and other types of general office-usage documents.

We've had to reinstall it after a recent crash (on a backup server, so it's a different machine than the original which has been in operation for a year or so). During the licensing process, one of the required steps produces a "Runtime error:'429', Cannot create ActiveX Object"

This one has stumped me, our distributor's techie, AND the tech support at SDSI (the people who make unform), and they went so far as to recreate our server environment in their own office, still with no luck diagnosing it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and you get the added ego-stroke of knowing you beat out at least 6 or 7 pro techies! Thanks. :)

Sounds like either a corrupt DLL or control is not correctly registered.

Can you work out what the failing ActiveX controll is (by ellimination), ensure that it is in the system root and run the command:

regsvr32 <name of control>
