I have an ASP.NET 2.0 web application that opens and prints Excel files. It works fine on my development machine; however, I've deployed it to my test server and I get the following error when I try to use the Excel Interop object:

Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {00024500-0000-0000-C000-0000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070005.

I've already gone into Component Services and added the ASPNET user to the Excel DCOM object's users and given it full permissions; but, I'm still getting the same error.

I'm stuck here and any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.
