MSXML on IIS7 in Classic ASP

DLockwood used Ask the Experts™
I am desperate for some help. I am new to IIS 7 but had a lot of experience with IIS 6.

I have a website running classic ASP. It was running on a shared hosting site running Windows Server 2008 and IIS 7 and was working fine.

I got a dedicated server from the same hosting company also using Windows Server 2008 and IIS 7. I migrated everything over and changed the basic settings, thinking everything would work fine. It worked on the shared plan - should work on my dedicated server.

Nothing involving MSXML calls is working.

The site I have wants to know what version of XML to use. I do not know what the server is using.

Whenever I run something tryin an MSXML call, it says it cannot create object.

I guess I just go lucky, but here is what I did.

I figured that maybe the server did not have MSXML installed. So, I installed MSXML 4 SP3 (I tried SP 2 first and it did NOT work do to some security settings).

After a quick reboot, everything is working fine.
