ActiveX component can't create object

ActiveX component can't create object

ActiveX component can't create object

(OP)
I am trying to display crystal reports through asp pages, but get the following error :
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01ad'

ActiveX component can't create object

/persondb/personnel/AlwaysRequiredSteps.asp, line 20

the line it means is :

If Not IsObject ( session ("oApp")) Then                              
Set session ("oApp") = Server.CreateObject("Crystal.CRPE.Application")
End If  

can anybody help ?


thanks

RE: ActiveX component can't create object

ASP cannot create an object from the Crystal library.  Crystal probably did not install correctly on the web server.

So by reinstalling crystal the problem should disappear ?

RE: ActiveX component can't create object

I would re-install Crystal.  In the past, I've installed the complete package of Crystal components on the web server. This way, if I cannot track down why a report doesn't run correctly, I can walk up to the web server, open the Crystal Designer and run the report locally to see if I can figure out the error.
