I am moving my websites from a server 2003x86 environment to a server 2008x64. the 2008 server is using iis 7.5 and the app pool I am using is configured for 32bit mode. I get an error 'Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3' Server.createObject failed.' I beleive that it is in the DLL's that all the ASP sites point to. My programmers, as usual, say it isn't code or the DLL's. Am I missing something to make these old DLL's work? By the way these sites are connecting to a SQL 2000 Database.

Given the dearth of specifics in your question, I can only make a educated guess. Since you moved from Server03 to 08, I can only assume that you were using an older version of IIS. That being said, you probably need to install the IIS 6 Management Compatibility add on that's found in the IIS role.

The ASP error you are getting is a pretty generic error that can be caused by a number of things from what I'm seeing on the search results, so if you want better answers you'll need to give more information about your setup, the code, etc.
