We recently migrated an application from a Windows 2000 server with IIS5 to a 2008 Standard server with IIS7. Everything on the new location works just fine so far with the exception that it would appear that one task or rather report in particular that
a user tries to pull results in the error above......and that is all I get...even when I turn off the "Show Friendly messages" in IE.....so that is not helpful at all....but the same page/report works perfectly fine on the old server (which I wisely kept around
just in case). I have checked the permissions on every one of the folders and compared them to the permissions of the folders on the new server and they are identical...I don't know where else to look..or what to do...short of keeping that old decripit box
around just so one person can run one report every week..any suggestions? Anyone?
Thanks in advance,

I have NO idea what you mean by asp pages...I mean; I know what they are; obviously; but as to how to look up what version IIS7 is running as opposed to IIS5; I have no idea...lol..as far as IIS7; I know just enough to be dangerous at it; unfortunately....but
I have looked at that page you suggested before and it wasn't very helpful. I did however enable "Detailed errors" in the hopes that I may see something of more use...anything else comes to mind; please let me know....and thanks...

A small interrupt for this thread.
May be this is a case of Visual and Information overload ?
I suggest look at IIS Net Learning Center:
Then Guide for Internet Information Services Manager
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/113/getting-started-with-iis-manager/ IIS Manager
the problem maybe with the "New Look and Feel" at the section View Figure 6 Switch to Content View which might be
more like IIS 6.0 IIS 5.1 Classic Manager.
Then using the IIS Manager using the IIS Net Guide and Figures look at the Icons and Labels for working
with the Server and Web Sites.
Just a suggestion,
Note: Benard should get credit for the replies ok.

Hey; thanks for the input. I will definitely check into that. I do have some amplifying infomation now. After turning on the feature to allow for detailed errors; I DO now get the following "Microsoft JScript Runtime error 800a01ad Automation Server
can't create object"
I have to assume that is referencing some kind of COM object that is installed on the old server, but is not present on the new one?

Ya should be along that path.. trace the line having issue and make sure the component is registered properly and the app user has permission to read/execute it.

where do you see the automation error msgs?
I would expect the browser display more info about the line number as well.
if not have you look at the log entry ? it should also tells you the com or object name, right?
