This error means "Invaild ProgID". Verify that WebMail was installed correctly by running the Diagnostics utility. This component is located in the file MEAPWMS.DLL

I haven't tried installing ME on .NET Server yet. Since .NET Server is locked down tightly on install, I wonder if it is a permissions issue.

I'll have to test it and report back my findings.

Good luck.

The diagnostic utility does not check to see if the WebMail DLL is sucessfully installed in Component Services. Within the forum, you will see that others are running ME on .NET Server/Win 2003. (aint it funny how MS products are named according to the year they RTM, not when people actually deploy them!).

In any case, we will run ME Pro up on W2003 (we have done so before at leat 10 times looking in the deployment test log) and see if there are any issues.

Hi Dave...

I understand that it is a version BETA TEST of the Windows 2003 Server, but have that to congratulate the Microsoft (Arghhh..) therefore this new windows server is simply D+.... coming back to the subject, I I verified permissions of folders, are OK, I compared with another server who this running windows 2000 server.... and pparently is all OK...

One asks silly hehe..: This such "Object" that it says not to create, what it is? Would be some TEMP file? Perhaps if he will be, I has that to modify the permissions of the folder where it will twirl? This is an attempt... hehe

Great hug,

Daniel Neto

Debtor to whom they had tried to help...

I obtained to decide following the steps that "plechem" posted have some time...

I think that this can be added to the guide of the user and to the KB... :twisted: :evil:

!!!! This also serves to the "MEadmin" (meapwas.dll) !!!!

Hug,

_____________________________________________________________

I reregistered MEAPWMS.DLL and it's OK now.

If anyone else is having a problem, basically:


:arrow: Open command prompt
:arrow: Navigate to the ME Bin directory by typing CD C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\Bin (or wherever you've installed it to) and press ENTER.
:arrow: If you've installed it on a different drive, eg D:, you may also have to type in D: and press ENTER.
:arrow: Type regsvr32 MEAPWMS.DLL and press ENTER.
:arrow: Click OK in the popup box.
:arrow: Close the Command prompt!


Hope this works for you!

We had exactly the same problem but even though we reregistered meapwas.dll webmail still wouldn't function.

More strange was that later after 4th reinstall the MMC totally corrupted and changes could be entered but not save and we got a runtime component error (sorry this was a while back and don't have exact message).

Went back to RC1 and all was ok - so just put it down to changes in rc2 which hadn't been taken into account with ME.

We are testing the servers as we want to use Windows Server 2003 when they are released.

SOLVED: Using Windows .NET 2003 - Error with IIS 6

Post by communitypc » Thu Feb 20, 2003 6:10 pm

Caution - long post !!

Note: All paths listed here are for Windows .NET Server 2003 RC2

The ASP 0177 error mentioned by Daniel means that the password set for the IME_ADMIN user account (Computer Management -> Local Users and Groups -> Users) is *different* to the password set on that same account in Component Services (Administrative Tools -> Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer -> COM+ Applications -> Mail Enable -> Properties -> Identity Tab). Both passwords of course need to be the same (as there is only ONE ime_admin user). (You are strongly advised to reboot your server after making these changes because they usually don't take effect until you do).

This procedure is what support mentioned elsewhere in this thread.

However, .NET Server 2003 RC2 (perhaps also RC1) has another problem. When trying to access web mail you may also get an ASP 0178 error. This error is very similar to 0177, as it pertains to component security settings. When compared with Windows 2000 Server, one of the settings in Component Services is different. As soon as you remove this setting, error 0178 goes away, and you're able to logon to web mail.

The setting is: Administrative Tools -> Component Services -> Computers -> My Computer -> COM+ Applications -> Mail Enable -> Properties -> Security Tab -> "Enforce Access Checks for this Application". This setting must be turned OFF (like in 2000 server). Note: a reboot of the server typically is *not* required when changing this setting.

I hope this helps any .net server admins out there.

Cheers
