Hey!

I am using a upload.asp script to upload csv files to a database. Until now everything worked fine, but suddenly today I get this error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01ad'

ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.FileSystemObject'

/admin/upload.asp, line 31

I haven't changed anything in the code on line 31:

set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   set myFile = fso.OpenTextFile(server.mappath(filename), 1, True)
   i=0

Open in new window


Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Hi,

I assume you are logged in as Administrator, please have a look in registry for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Scripting.FileSystemObject.

If you can not find this PROGID then you are missing the required files or the component is disabled (not registered).

Scripting.FileSystemObject is implemented in scrrun.dll.
You can register the dll via regsvr32.exe

Hi! Thanks for the answer! No, this website is hosted so I don't have admin rights. Should I contact the hosting company about this?

What webhosting service are you using and did they "upgrade" the servers or environment?

The webhosting service is .ASP.  I'll check with the The web hosting company if they have upgraded their servers... they are very slow in replying...
