Runtime error 429: ActiveX Component Can't Create Object

Posted on 2011-03-25

I have a program written in VB6 and am attempting to run it on SBS 2008. When I run it I get the error message as in the title of this question.

It is clear this is an issue around references so I downloaded Dependency Walker to try and track down what files I need to bring with me.

I have moved and registered as many as I can but am now stuck.

The following two files cannot be found but are also not found on an XP machine where this program works perfectly
GPSVC.DLL
IESHIMS.DLL

The program references the RS232 port using MSCOMM and accesses an access 2002 database. I have ensured MSCOMM32, DAO3.6 and MSWINSCK are all properly registered.

Can anyone offer any ideas if these files are to blame for the error and if so, where can I get them? Or if there is anything else I can try?

Thanks
Darren

Hi.

Dependency walker can only show you early bound references, which isn't enough for the full picture.

If you know of DLLs that need to be registered and that usually works, have you verified that you're using the 32 bit regsvr32? By default, you're using the 64 bit version which will register them in the wrong space.

Yes I have verified that

How else can I find what files I need to register?

Did not solve the problem. I have worked around the problem by replacing SBS 2008 with Server 2003
