ASP Error -2147467259 (0x80004005)

ASP Error -2147467259 (0x80004005)

ASP Error -2147467259 (0x80004005)

Hi Guys,

I recently installed Service Pack 2 on my Windows XP PC and checked for all updates then rebooted. Since then, IIS will not work properly. All ASP & ASP.NET pages return the following error:

-2147467259 (0x80004005)

Also, every so often, upon opening IIS admin, I get a "COM Surrogate Error". I have checked for further updates, have reinstalled ASP.NET using aspnet_iisreg.exe, have tried to replace asp.dll with the previous version but still I get the same error.

Any ideas? Microsoft's support website wasn't much help...

Hi Guys,

I have found the problem, and have fixed it. In case anyone else experiences this annoying problem after installing SP2 on XP, I'll note it here. It's so simple - the Windows Scripting Host was corrupt. I went to run a VBScript a little while ago when I discovered that it wouldn't run - apparently there was "no vbscript engine available".

So I downloaded and installed Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 2000 and XP from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?Fa...

After a reboot, all worked fine - IIS no longer returned COM+ errors and ASP/ASP.NET pages are all working fine too.

That's Microsoft for you!

Thanks for your help
