I'm trying to use excel from within my asp script. I should point out that the script works just fine on my development machine (XP) after I granted access to the iusr and iwam accounts in com+. On the sever an error is logged in the system error log directing me to grant access to the iis apppool\dssolutions. Dssolutions is the name of the app pool. I'm able to do this but I still have the automation error being thrown. There must be something maybe else required on windows server 2012 iis that is missing?
