accmgr.system help

Hello, I am writing some macros in Excel/VBA to control Attachmate accessory manager.  I am trying to call accmgr.system as an object, but I get a "429 - Active X can't create object error".  I believe this is because I have not set it as a reference in VB.  The problem is that accmgr is not in my list of references.  I have tried browsing for it, but am unable to locate the dll or other object I need.  

Does anyone know what the name of the dll I need to load as a refernce is?  Also do you have a copy of it?

Here is the code:


Sub testmacro()

MsgBox "Macro running."
Dim Sessions As Object
Dim System As Object
Dim Sess0 As Object

'Extra Objects
    Set System = CreateObject("Accmgr.System")   ' Gets the system object
    If (System Is Nothing) Then MsgBox "Could not create the EXTRA System object.  Stopping macro playback.": Stop
    Set Sessions = System.Sessions
    If (Sessions Is Nothing) Then: MsgBox "Could not create the Sessions collection object.  Stopping macro playback.": Stop
    Set Sess0 = System.ActiveSession
    If (Sess0 Is Nothing) Then MsgBox "Could not create the Session object.  Stopping macro playback.": Stop
MyString = Sess0.Screen.GetString(5, 20, 20)

MsgBox MyString

Set Sessions = Nothing
Set System = Nothing
Set Sess0 = Nothing
End Sub
