I am getting this error on all my asp pages that try to Server.CreateObject. If i restart IIS it goes away for a while... but then comes back again. I read on microsoft's support pages and they say check the path in the registry to make sure the dll's are in the proper place, I did that and looks fine. I also went through and gave IUSR_MACHINENAME read/write access to certain folders because supposively that may also cause this problem. however now i'm still getting this error and i can't get rid of it except to keep restarting IIS. Any ideas??<BR><BR>this is the line of code on all pages it errors on:<BR>set cn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.connection")<BR><BR> The error reads:<BR><BR>Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0115' <BR><BR>Unexpected error <BR><BR>/iisHelp/common/500-100.asp <BR><BR>A trappable error (C0000005) occurred in an external object.
