Getting the below error after publishing a VS project to Windows Server 2003 IIS. On my local machine, I created a new project, added a reference to the MS Outlook Object 10.0 Library.  Basically I list some tasks to the user and give them the option to save the task to Outlook at as calandar event.

I don't use VS that much and wonder if I screwed up by creating a project and not a web site. This is the first time I use the Publish option. So I don't know if I screw the publish part up or if it's that reference to something on my localmachine.

Where is that coming from? Any pointers or help would be appreciated.

Let's start at the beginning...
All office components are 32-bit DLLs, so that means you'll have to configure your Web service to run in the 32-bit emulation mode on a 64-bit version of Windows 2003
Make sure that the Windows Server 2003 actually has the Office Primary Interop Assembiles (PIA) installed (er, well... or it has Office itselft installed)

It's strickly running as SQL server  and IIS.  Excuse the ignorance...but do I really need to install Outlook or Office on the server?

Well, if your web application is using a reference to "MS Outlook Object 10.0 Library", then you'll at least need the Office PIAs installed on the server
