Default ActiveX Component cannot create Object

Hi,
   I have developed a VB Application in Windows2000 and created a package. I run the setup and at the end I got the error "An Error Occurred While Registering the File Msado21.tlb". I ignored that error and the application worked well. But when I try to install the setup in Windows XP I got the same error and when running the application I got the error "ActiveX Component cannot create Object". The application will insert an image in an Existing word file and send it as attachment by email. If it works in Windows 2000 and why it is not working in Windows XP?

Thanks for helps
Madhivanan

Hi Madhivanan,

TLB files was not properly registered. In your package and deployment look for the file setup.lst then under the [Setup1 Files]
section look for the entry of Msado21.tlb, make sure that the registration is set to TLBRegister instead of DLLSelfRegister. Package and deployment wizard causes this error, just change and save your setup.lst then re-install your package.

Hi Dhodie,
          I get my error solved. The problem is that I send mail thru the VB application using CDONTS but IIS is not configured to SMTP Services in the XP Machine. I corrected that and it is working well. Thanks for your reply.

 You should start a new thread. Piggy-backing on an existing thread is less likely to get you responses. Also, you might want to describe your problem a little better, and show some code.

Hello everyone,

according to my experience in deployment, what ever the controls you add in the setup package 3rd party, your own, or custom dlls, If the setup package is built with VSI 1.1 or higher, you will never face any such problems. No matter what the target machine is, it will succeed and application works. If deployment situation comes then, VSI is the only one I see for now, and I am happy to use it.


With Regards,
Raghavendra Mudugal
