    Vbscript connection issue on Windows server 2008

    944432
      We have a vbscript that runs perfectly from a .bat file on win server 2003. We moved it to 2008 and I get this error at this line:

      "Active X component can't create object: OracleInProcServer.XOraSession"

      Set dbSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession")

      Anyone have any ideas? A DLL not registered?

      Thanks.

          We have the same issue. Is your Windows 2008 server x32 or x64? According to Oracle OLE Dev Guide (page 27) OLE is NOT supported on Windows 2008 x64. Would love to know what you come up with...posible a different DB connection method?

            "Active X component can't create object" means com+ was not able to instantiate the object. Usually it occurs because either

            a) the component is not installed/registered, so install it, or
            b) you're using a 64 bit process, and have the 32 bit component registered (so ultimately, it's still "not registered" as far as 64 bit goes, because it simply doesn't exist)

            If using vbscript, you'll need to invoke the vbs file with the 32bit vbscript or cscript.exe (ie, c:\windows\syswow64\cscript.exe) , and then it should work.

            You're right that it's not supported. 32 bit oo4 on 64 bit OS does seem to work fine though, based on my limited testing. It's not something we can help with if you encounter a problem in that config, but if just getting it to work is good enough, you may want to try it.

            32 bit OLEDB IS supported on x64, if you want to change from OO4O to ADO.

              Due to other software requirements on the web server, we were stuck using the x64 Oracle client. Althought I read you could have both x64 and x32 installed - we opted to go with OleDB and got it working.

              As opposed to using:
              Set dbSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession")

              We used:
              Set dbsession = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
              dbsession.Open "Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1;Password=abc123;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=generic_user;Data Source=tnsnames_alias"
