Exception starting new Profiling session

jderose9jderose9 Posts: 2
I am trying to profile a .Net 1.1 web app using IIS and I am running into an exception. The profiler appears to restart IIS succesfully, but then I receive this message:

Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID {0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} from the IClassFactory failed due to the following error: 80004005.

    Hello Jason,

    The CLSID referenced in the error message is the Internet Explorer component, so the problem is that ANTS Memory Profiler is trying to launch a new instance of IE as a test harness and it cannot create the IE object that it needs.

    You should be able to fix this by registering the IE COM component from a command prompt:
    regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
