Sorry if I'm posting this to the wrong area: I'm going nuts trying to figure this issue out. I've done a search in TechNet and Google using the error codes (shown below) and while they come up with possibilities, none seem to match this particular issue.
I'm using Classic ASP on IIS 7 running under Windows Vista Home Premium on a 64-bit computer. There appears to be no issues with using ADO on the machine and as far as I can tell all standard ADO objects can be instantiated except for the Scripting File
System Object. Here's a smippet of code I use just to test and bring the issue to the surface to show an error message:
As soon as the code executes, the following error message appears in the browser:
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'
/didly/TEST_CREATE_FILESYSTEMOBJECT.asp, line 4
As I said, I dicovered the problem only recently but I can't say when it actually started and there are no issues with creating other ASP objects.
The Vista machine has been updated with the latest updates and it may have stopped working somewhere along the way.
The computer is running Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 2
IIS7 is version 7.0.6000.16386
Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Run "regsvr32 scrrun.dll" to see if it helps. You can also try run your script form command line.
