IIS7 - Server.CreateObject Failed

Dear Experts

We have recently upgraded our web server from Windows 2003 running IIS6 to Windows 2008 and IIS7.

We Office Writer (by SoftArtisans) to create word documents from some of our websites, however we are receiving the error below when attempting to create the word documents.

Can anyone suggest what might be the problem?

Thanks

Check your CreateObject call and make sure that you are passing a valid application ID (it's called ProgID). If you are using a third-party COM object, you may need to register this object first (e.g. regsvr32 myobject.dll).

Hi

Thanks for your response.

The error line 84 is as per below.  How can I check if this is registered?

Thanks

Set WordTempl = Server.CreateObject("SoftArtisans.WordTemplate")

Installing SoftArtisans Office Writer on the server should register the DLL itself. Do you have the access to the server? If yes, then you can check if the software is installed or not. If no, then ask the administrator to check whether it is installed or not. I feel that the software is not installed on the server.

Hi,

It is our own webserver and I installed SoftArtisans Office Writer 4.1.0. myself so the software is definately installed.

In that case there should be a dll which you need to register. I don't know the name, but it should resemble the name WordTemplate.
