Classic ASP DLL Object Creation


I have been migrating a group of classic ASP pages to a new server and I have been unable to get a DLL working on a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine.

I have thus far:
+installed the DLL filed using regsvr32 at the same folder location as the ASP page that uses it.
+installed all the windows features and roles to ensure ASP pages are working (other ASP pages work)
+tested the DLL file and asp page on another server (Windows 2012 and it works fine there)
+tested it on another 2012 box that is clean with nothing on it (This did not work)
+Checked the security permissions to allow access to the DLL

The error I get is Error Code 800a01ad: ActiveX component can't create object. It works fine on a Server 2008 box and a Server 2012 non-R2 box with the exact same DLL and asp page. The dll is imply declared in VBScript.

I think you have to register it in system32.  That is what I had to do when I migrated to 2008 then again to 2012.
