Redemption "COM class factory" error

I have a web application which uses redemtpion to create a .msg file and pass it to the user.  I am getting the following error:

Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {29ab7a12-b531-450e-8f7a-ea94c2f3c05f} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

On this line:

Dim session As New Redemption.RDOSession

The code works fine on 3 servers in 3 different environments, but throws this error at a new client site.  My research leads me to believe that this is some kind of security/permissions problem but so far I have not been able to nail it down.  I have registered and reregistered redemption.dll, also checked the permissions on the folder where it is located to make sure aspnet, network service, users, domain users, all have full rights.

Hello rerard,

80040154 means "Class not registered". Did you install Redemption on the client?

Regards,

Yup.. installed redemption, and when that didn't help I also tried to register the dll manually via regsvr32.

Is it possible that redemption is being blocked by AV software, there is no indication of this but I am grasping at straws.

The client installed Oulook on the server, which resolved the issue.  Our internal server does not have Oulook but it does have the exchange CDO so I think redemption requires one or the other.
