Aspose.Excel in ASP

Hi, I'm brand new to Aspose.Excel and my first requirement is a little out of the ordinary I think. I need to include Aspose.Excel in my ASP/VBScript apps. These are older apps that will eventually be moved to ASP.Net but for now we need to build some spreadsheets in ASP.

I've installed 2.4.1 and built a little tiny asp page to test out the object creation...


dim excel
set excel = CreateObject("Aspose.Excel.Excel")

But I get the error message...
Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01AD)
ActiveX component can't create object: 'Aspose.Excel.Excel'

I read the forums and thought I might fix this by running REGASM on the aspose.excel - I did this and the registration worked.

But I still get the same error when trying to create the object.

What am I missing?


Now the install msi can correctly register the dll for COM usage. Your manual registration is also OK. I think your problem is caused by IE security setting. You can try this to verify it:

Create a test.vbs which only includes 2 line of code:
dim excel
set excel = CreateObject(“Aspose.Excel.Excel”)

Then in your command prompt window, run:

cscript test.vbs

You can see the code running without any problem. Otherwise please check if the dll is correctly registered.

When I try this test.vbs script I get this error…

I:\wwwroot\mssq\includes\layout\test.vbs(2, 1) (null): The system cannot find the file specified.

Does this mean that the dll is not correctly registered?

Can you hint me with the correct command to register the dll correctly.



I solved this problem by uninstalling my current aspose.excel and reinstalling from the downloads section of Aspose web site. Seems to work now - maybe I had an old version?
