0x8000FFFF When calling CreateObject("Aspose.Words.License")

I am trying to use the aspose.words component that my colleague (now left) has setup on our server (which is working) on my development machine but I am getting an error when trying to create the object.

The server is 32bit
I am running 64bit
My local IIS application pool is running in 32bit mode
I have registered the Aspose.Words.dll using the 32bit regasm "c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\regasm /codebase Aspose.Words.dll"
I have created a test vbscript which works from the command line using the 32bit cscript.exe

I have given the whole web site folder “Everyone->Full Control” permissions.

But it is still failing to create that object.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions … I have been dropped in it so I really need a hand to get going on this.



Thanks for your request. This might be the same problem as described here:


Hope this helps.

Best regards,

I found the solution to this, I had to put the Application Pool Identity in “Advanced Settings” to “ApplicationPoolIdentity”
