Using COM Objects from aSP.NET

iStock_000005899630MediumI got the following question yesterday:

Hi, I created a web application in which I am generating a ms-word document using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word dll. The application is running fine in the visual studio but when I tried to run on IIS 5.0 through virtual directory then its giving the following error – Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {000209FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070005. In my application I have taken reference of microsoft Word 12.0 Object Library, but its coming as microsoft.Office.Interop.Word dll, this interop dll is just a wrapper of the actual word COM dll. But I have to register the actual word COM dll. so my problem is to find – 1) The path of the original word dll(COM) 2) How to register this dll, either using regsvr32 or to register on IIS. OR there will be any other solution. I have gone through many forums but did’nt get any solution. If you have any idea/suggestion on COM Word components please revert me back.
