IIS7 - Server.CreateObject Failed

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
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?


Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3' 

Server.CreateObject Failed
