  • Hello Kevin,
    Any other errors in the event log?

    I would be guessing that you need to  run DCOMCNFG tool to configure security settings for the COM object.  Goto Start | Run enter DCOMCNFG, then drill down under Component Services | Computers | My Computer -> DCOM Config

    Locate your COM object and then right click and select properties, then go to Security tab.  The COM security props go above and beyond your normal NT security rights everything is now locked down by default.   "Local activation" is Launch and Activation permissions

    Let me know if it doesn't work.
