    I am developin g an web application in which png files are created from pdf files. the platform is VS.Net 2005 and  .Net framework 2. 
    I get this below error message when JIT debugging is enabled.
    "An unhandled exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExternalException' occurred in System.Drawing.dll. I faced this error while running the exe in Windows server 2003 Standard edition SP1 whereas while trying in windows 2000 service pack 4, this error cannot be reproduced. I think this is operation system issue with Windows server 2003 Standard edition SP1. Can anyone please  help me in solving this issue. Please treat this urgent.

    When this problem occurs, it means you can't invoke the COM.

    Maybe, I think, the problem is the Win2003's popedom is high or incorrect you have configured.
