Re: Class not registered on local machine (Error 463) Clarified
I could be much more precise - here is a simplified example of what we are
We have an interface class, called iBSWrapper in the itsBSInterfaces DLL.
For simplicity sake, we'll say that the only method on iBSWrapper is
Pubic Function GetData() AS ADODB.RecordSet
itsBSInterfaces DLL is registered on the client machine and on the MTS
Server (outside of MTS)
We then have a VB Component running under MTS that IMPLEMENTS
itsBSInterfaces.iBSWrapper as has code the return a recordset in the
We have DLL's registered on the client machine like this (m_strAppServer is
passed in to the DLL from the EXE. m_strAppServer contains the name of the
Private m_iBSWrapper As itsBSInterfaces.IBSWrapper
Private Sub CreateMTSWrapper()
On Error GoTo ERROR_LABEL
Const strWRAPPER As String = "itsBSCountry.CBSCountryWrapper"
If Not m_iBSWrapper Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If Len(Trim(m_strAppServer)) = 0 Then
' for development against local DLLs
Set m_iBSWrapper = CreateObject(strWRAPPER)
' run under MTS
Set m_iBSWrapper = CreateObject(strWRAPPER, m_strAppServer)
If Err.Source <> App.EXEName Then
'source was deliberately set by this proc or a proc called here, so
pass it back as-is
Err.Raise Err.Number, Err.Source, Err.Description
'vb just raised this error here
Err.Raise Err.Number, TypeName(Me), Err.Description
I did not register any of the DLL's or typelib's for the DLL's running
under MTS on the client machine.
The Set m_iBSWrapper = CreateObject(strWRAPPER, m_strAppServer) is what is
failing with the "class ..." error message.
