Why do I get 800401F3 / 800A01AD errors?

This error is usually associated with trying to create an instance of a COM object using a ProgID that is not actually registered on the machine. The error message might be one of the following: 
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'  
Server.CreateObject Failed  
/<file>.asp, line <line>  
Invalid class string  
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800a01f3' 
Server.CreateObject Failed 
/<file>.asp, line <line> 
Invalid class string 
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01AD) 
ActiveX component can't create object: <progid> 
/<file>.asp, line <line> 
Common causes for this are: 
  1. forgetting to register the object using regsvr32;
  2. fat-fingering the ProgID (e.g. "CDNOTS.NewMial");
  3. not realizing that the object is not actually installed;
  4. corrupted MDAC (see Article #2121;
  5. using an MSWC or IIS sample component that is not installed (see KB #249290 for more info).
See Article #2135 for information on determining if a COM object is installed on your server. 
If you are getting the following error: 
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 80080005' 
Server.CreateObject Failed 
/<file>.asp, line <line>  
Server execution failed
See KB #241057 for information on setting your MTS package identity appropriately. 
If you are using Index Server, and this error occurs on the following line: 
Set something = Server.CreateObject("IXSSO.Query")
Then try the following, in this order: 
  1. Make sure session state is enabled
  2. Stop Index Service, empty the catalog.wci folder, restart the Index service
  3. upgrade to version 3.0
  4. uninstall / reinstall Index Server
