[RESOLVED] Class not registered
I'm having quite the problem here. I'm trying to use a component in ASP (which uses Visual Basic) but I get the error "Class not registered". I have used it before on a different computer.
The component is a DLL file, and when I type "regsvr32 ICONV.DLL" into the command prompt I get the message:
"DllRegisterServer in ICONV.DLL succeeded."
I have tried doing it with a local (meaning I'm sitting at the actual computer) Administrator account. When I open the registry the entry is where it should be and the "System" user account has full permission.
When I run the ASP page, or a .vbs script in Windows (also as a local Administrator), I get the following message:
ICONV.ICONVObject error '80040154'
Class not registered
/_functions.asp, line 1335
If I then do "regsvr32 /u ICONV.DLL" I get the message:
"DllUnregisterServer in ICONV.DLL succeeded."
And the registry entry is gone, so it works. If I run the ASP page then I get the following message:
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01ad'
ActiveX component can't create object: 'ICONV.ICONVObject'
/_functions.asp, line 1321
This means that it apparently knows when the DLL file is registered, but still says it isn't registered?
Line 1335 in my code:
Line 1321 in my code:
Set ic = CreateObject("ICONV.ICONVObject")
The "ic.Execute" command is almost the last line of the "ic block", after that "ic.Save()" is used then ic is removed from memory ("Set ic = Nothing"). Several commands are done on ic before "Execute", for example "ic.ImageWidth = 200", all of these give no error.
I have been able to run this code when I installed the DLL file this way before, on the exact same OS (I even used the same CD to install Windows Server 2003).
Additional things I have tried:
+ Tried installing "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86".
+ Tried copying the DLL file to "C:\Windows\System32\", then I placed myself in that folder in CMD and typed "regsvr32 ICONV.DLL". (Got a message that it was successfully registered.)
None of these two tries made any difference, I still have the problem.
Somebody please help!

Re: Class not registered
Never mind, problem solved, it wanted to have an application installed. Now I remember this has happened before, at which time I was also as puzzled about it as I was now. I will make a note of it.
