Microsoft JScript runtime error: Automation server can't create object

Microsoft JScript runtime error: Automation server can't create objectQuestion:
I'm trying to create an activeXObject  in javascript which works on my local machine just running the .htm file, but when I try to run it in Visual Web Developer 2008 I get the following error:
Microsoft JScript runtime error: Automation server can't create object

I also get a similar error running it on a IIS6.0 server. I played around with lots of settings but can't get it to work.

            alert(abc.Age());
        }

Is your ActiveXObject installed in all the environments/machines where you are trying to load it?

Usually "Automation server can't create object" points to two causes:
-Misspell on object names (this probably isn't the problem as you made it work on local environment).
-Absence of object on execution environment.
