Hey guys hope you can assist me here.

We recently updated to the latest .dll on our server (from a very dated version) and while we can successfully run the testCreateObject batch file, running the .vbs file ends with the error in the mentioned in the title.

I am able to run scripts successfully creating objects by adding the script path as an argument, for example:

C:windowssysWOW64wscript myScript.vbs

but when executing a .vbs file on it's own by double-clicking or otherwise results in the error.

Error: ActiveX component can't create object: 'Chilkat_9_5_0.Ftp2' OS: Windows Server 2008R x64 dll installed x32 (both x32 and x64 methods) Code: 800A01AD Source VBScript runtime error

Any assistance you can provide or light you could should on where I'm going wrong would be awesome.

Thank you!

It should actually be "Chilkat_9_5_0.Ftp2"

On 64-bit Windows, to run a VBScript in 64-bit mode, do this:

C:\windows\sysWOW64\cscript createObj64.vbs

On 64-bit Windows, to run a VBScript in 32-bit mode (and thus using the 32-bit ActiveX), do this:

C:\windows\system32\cscript imapFetchBundle.vbs

There is no Chilkat_9_5_0.Ftp2 object, try creating a Chilkat_v9_5_0.ChilkatFtp2 object instead.

Thanks for the info, and sorry for muddying the waters with misinformation. In VB6 it is Chilkat_v9_5_0.ChilkatFtp2 though is it not? At least it appears to be so in the object browser, and autocomplete.

Ok thanks jpbro and chilkat for your help and responses.

I'm glad to know I wasn't going mental. It was just strange going from a real old version of the library where it would work just by double-clicking the .vbs file to now having to execute the file as a parameter. But hey, it works!

Cheers guys!
