Default CreateObject error on IIS 4 but not IIS 5

I wrote a script yesterday in ASP to get an XML stream and parse it into nice happy HTML. On IIS 5, it works flawlessly, but I have tried it on 2 separate machines running IIS 4, and I get the following error:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'

Server.CreateObject Failed


Invalid class string

The four instances of the Server.CreateObject function are the following:

Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.FreeThreadedDomDocumen t")

Can anyone think of any reason why IIS 4 is having a problem with this?

I don't think the MSXML2 is present on IIS 4 by default.

You'll need to download this version from the Microsoft Downloads section....
