OLE error in NAS

We're running NAV2009 with a NAS service running on a dedicated server (Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard). No NAV client is installed on the server. When running a codeunit through the job queue the NAS service generates the following warning (visible in the event viewer):

Could not create an instance of the OLE control or Automation server identified by
GUID={68AEAA7B-9523-3511-AF5F-F2381D2C6F04} 1.0:{F9DAE2A4-D2F8-37C3-86D5-E4FFE166D860}:Unknown Automation Server.Unknown Class.

The following bit of code triggers the warning:
FileGFil is a global variable with data type File.

Running the same code unit through a client doesn't raise any errors.

It appears not all required dll's are registered on the server. Is there a specific dll I should register, or should we do a full client install on the machine?

    a) What is the type of file you are trying to create?
    b) Does the user account under which NAS is running got sufficient permissions to create/modify the file in the location where the file is created?

    Hi Kishragu,
    a) it's a text file
    b) yes, the NAS user's got complete access to the file location.

    Hope you can help... thanks.

    You need to install the the automation control:
    Microsoft Navision Mail
    it has the GUID={68AEAA7B-9523-3511-AF5F-F2381D2C6F04}

    you should have it in your NAV client directory, just register the "Microsoft Navision Mail.dll" with something like:

    regasm "Microsoft Navision Mail.dll" /tlb:"Microsoft Navision Mail.tlb" /codebase
    gacutil /i "Microsoft Navision Mail.dll"

    Also, running the client install will register it for you.
