Activex Object Can't create component

RESOLUTION
Installing SQL DMO for Direct-Access to SQL Server:
If you get this message when you try to add a SQL Server connection to the DataServer window, or when you try to access a SQL Server directly, this means you do not have the necessary infrastructure for the SQL Server tools (SQLDMO) installed anywhere on your computer.

To remedy this, first, you must have MDAC installed on your system with a version of at LEAST 2.6. If you are not sure, you can download a version checker here.

If you don't have a version greater than 2.6, the link for version 2.8 (the current version at the time of this faq), is available for download here.

Next, when, and ONLY when you have made sure your MDAC version is 2.6 or above, you must install the SQLDMO infrastructure. The link for downloading the setup file for this is here.

Instructions and Sequence:
(the order is very important here)

1. Uninstall ASP Express
2. If MDAC is not greater than v2.6, install MDAC
3. Install the SQL DMO Infrastructure setup.exe (dmosetup.exe)
4. Then - and only then - reinstall ASPExpress

(Of course, then, there must be an instance of MSDE or SQL Server on your computer or network, available to your computer)
