COM object and IIS 5.0

COM object and IIS 5.0

COM object and IIS 5.0

(OP)
HI,

I created an application package COM object on IIS 5.0 using the Component Services/COM+ Applications utility on Windows 2K server. I created the object with VB 6.0.  What I'd like it to do is create user accounts on the server through a web page.  

When I created the application I selected administrator user credentials so the COM object would run under that users context and be able to create the accounts.  The trouble is the .asp page I execute through the web browser to create the accounts always prompts me for user credentials and the only credentials that will work are the administrative credentials.  Once I type them in the account is created.  If I type any other credentials in I'm still prompted for a username and password.  If I change the NTFS permissions on the .asp file to just anonymous users, I get an error "access denied".

The whole purpose of creating the object was to allow users to create accounts on this machine through a web page that will be restricted to specific users.  What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Aaron
