Error running asp pages when an assembly is added referencing MS Office

Hi,

I have an asp.net application which uses .Net Framework 4.0 with IIS 6.0 and Windows Server 2003 on the host server. I've added the reference shown in the attached code, and since adding them I get this error at runtime:
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Maybe I need to add a reference in the assembly in the GAC in .Net Framework 4.0?

I would be grateful for any advice.

Louise

Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'Office, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

<assemblies>
        <add assembly="Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71E9BCE111E9429C"/>
			</assemblies>

- Add that DLL into GAC (C:/Windows/assembly)

Thanks for responding. It's already there in C:\Windows\Assembly, with the same public key token.

is Excel fully installed on the server?
using Office automation on a web server is not recommended. you should use something like http://www.aspose.com/categories/.net-components/aspose.cells-for-.net/default.aspx

Hi,
Yes, Excel is installed on the server but Office 2003 not 2007. I'll change the version and see if that fixes it. In the meantime could you advise a little more about Office using automation on a webserver? In code in my application I want to create Outlook messages with to and from addresses and the subject pre-set; the user would then modify as required and send him/herself. I also want to create a Word file in code which would then be saved on our network and from time to time it would be updated in Word or by code. Does that sound do-able? It's for use inside my company by only a handful of people.
Thanks,
Louise

The issue was resolved by installing the same version of Office as referenced in the assemblies element in web.config

Thanks also for link to MS page on Office automation in asp.net
