retrieving the com class factory for component error while generating word docum using -'asp.net,com,ms-word'


retrieving the com class factory for component error while generating word docum  using -'asp.net,com,ms-word'

I am trying to edit a word document from VB.NET using for the most part this code:

How to automate Word from Visual Basic .NET to create a new document
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316383

It works fine on my machine but when i publish to the server i get the following error.


  Retrieving the COM class factory for
  component with CLSID
  {000209FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}
  failed due to the following error:
  80070005.

  failed due to the following error:
  80070005.


The actual error happens when i try to just create a word application object

 Dim oWord As New Word.Application


Using Visual Studio 2008 and VB.NET 3.5. I made a reference to the "Microsoft Word 10.0 Object Library" and i see Interop.Word.dll file in the bin directory.

Using MS Office 2003 on development machine and Windows Server 2003

Still fairly new to .NET and don't have much knowledge about window server, but "UnauthorizedAccessException" sounds like a permission issue. I'm wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on what i might need to do to give my little application access to use word.
