    Win 98, COM+ Problems


    I am converting an app. from MTS to COM+ where the clients will be Win 98
    P.C.s To get ready I have created a small test DLL with just 1 Class with
    1 function that returns true. I have installed this on the Win 2000 server
    and created an application under component services, then exported it using
    'Applicatipon Proxy' as the type. On the Win 98 P.C. i installed the latest
    version of the Windows Installer (from instMSIA.exe). When I excute the MSI
    file created, it seems to install fine. And I can see the reference in my
    list when I go into VB. But when I use CreateObject, I get an 'ActiveX cannot
    create object' error. If I go into 'Add/Remove Programs' on the Win 98 P.C.
    I can see the 'application Proxy', but I can't see anything under DCOMCNFG.
    This same application proxy wroks fine when installed on a Win 2000 Pro.
    P.C. Any ideas?

    Lose9x prefers to use NetBEUI for DCOM, but LoseXP apparently demands
    TCP/IP. Micro$haft must want to lure the ƣ33t }~{׫ dz away
    from Linux really bad, if they're willing to sabotage their corporate
    customers' security like that... NetBEUI was /perfect/ for internal
    chatter that shouldn't go anywhere near the Internet!

    Those bastards... This is ridiculous!
