Need to call a .Net Class library dll from a Classic ASP Page

I need to call a .Net Class Library from a vbscript application I have written a C# class library and created a COM DLL component and a type library file I have successfully registered the dll and tlb on my local computer using

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegAsm.exe "C:\user\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\[Sample]\[Sample]\bin\Debug\[Sample].dll" /tlb "C:\user\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\[Sample]\[Sample]\bin\Debug\[Sample].tlb"

The dll and the type library file are registered successfully I can see them in the windows registry

Now the issue is accessing it in an asp page:

<%@ Language=VBScript %> <html> <body> <% dim cls dim myDevelopmentDBConn Set myDevelopmentDBConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") With myDevelopmentDBConn .Provider = "SQLNCLI" .ConnectionString = "user ID=abc;password=abc;Initial Catalog=TestLdb;Data Source=sqlservername" .ConnectionTimeout = 600 .CommandTimeout = 600 .Open End With Response.Write myDevelopmentDBConn Set myDevelopmentDBConn =nothing Set cls = Server.CreateObject("Sample.SqlJobs") 'SqlJobs is the name of the class Response.Write cls 'Response.Write "<b>" & cls.UpdateSqlJob("Test1","sqlservername", "abc", "abc" ) & "</b>" 'Test1=sqlserverjob name 'abc-username 'abc-password Set cls =nothing %> </body> </html>

When I run this file I got the following error

The page cannot be displayed

I am getting an error

Error Type: Server object, ASP 0177 (0x80131522) 80131522 /testdll.asp, line 25 Set cls = Server.CreateObject("Sample.SqlJobs") //SqlJobs is the name of the class This will be the line 25 The server Instance is not getting created

Can anyone please help me figure out where I am going wrong and suggest me possible ways of fixing this issue?


You should be using the /codebase command line switch with regasm if your assembly is not installed into the GAC.

"...The Codebase entry specifies the file path for an assembly that is not installed in the global assembly cache..." - have a look at this link for more info
