    Default ActiveX and ASP

    I have an ActiveX control that can successfully when called from a VB exe, open a word doc behind the scenes and read info out of it and update a database. The problem I am having is when I call it from ASP. This is a server-side control but it fails on a ms word object call. Is there something I have to do special with IIS or in my ASP page besides CreateObject then make the call?<BR><BR>

    Default If using IIS 3 or 4... have to enable the scripting of out-of-process objects. In other words, you can&#039;t call a ".exe" unless you enable that capability. Sorry I don&#039;t remember what you need to do for that, but you should be able to find it in the docs.<BR><BR>And I don&#039;t know what, if anything, you need to do to make it work in IIS 5.<BR><BR>
