Default Using VB.NET components with XP and WIN2000

I'm running XP and i'm trying to install a .net component( which references COM objects) to work with Excel. However, I keep getting an "Active X Component cannot Create object " error. The dev machine running Win 200, and VS.NeT, works fine when i try to do this but its only when I try and deploy it on the XP machine that this problem arises.

The XP machine has VB6 on it. I've tried registering the COM objects and then reference the type library file of the .net component from Excel. Just created the type library file using Regasm and copied the directory over to the XP machine which contains to Excel app too.

This error measage I get would have indicated an unregistered dll in COM but with .NET i don't know what it means.

Do you have any ideas that could help
