Error on web page

I am involved in a web site for a voluntary organisation, the site is written in asp, in the last day or so people have not been able to log in, and get this error

Server object error 'ASP 0178 : 80070005'

Server.CreateObject Access Error

/folder/file.asp, line 74

The call to Server.CreateObject failed while checking permissions. Access is denied to this object.

Line 74 is this line

Set Cryptor = Server.CreateObject("AspCrypt.Crypt")

Open in new window

Sounds like something changed on your server (IIS configuration? OS upgrade? etc). It is probably related to authentication and file/folder permissions. In which case, perhaps this might help:

The authenticated user for the Visual Basic (VB) run-time file (Msvbvm60.dll) does not have sufficient permissions. The authenticated user is the IUSR_computername account when you use anonymous access or the user that is authenticated with the Web page.

The DLL for the Crypt.Crypt needs to be either re-registered or the permissions need to be altered to include the user that you run your site through in IIS. This is usually the IUSR account.

My colleagues in the US have discovered that the web provider are migrating us to a new server as Microsoft doesn't support the old one. They said it should sort itself out, If it doesn't then I will try your suggestions.

It turns out that the migration had occurred but the DNS had not been changed so we were pointed to the old server rather than the new one. Once this had been done all was good.

None of the answers were anywhere near the actual problem which was that the host had not changed the DNS of the website to the new IP address so we were getting the old server
