IIS7 IIS7.5 Classic ASP Error on Server.CreateObject(“MSWC.NextLink”)

In newer versions of Windows Server and IIS, Windows Server 2008 and forward (Windows Server 2008 RC0 supposedly did include this) and IIS7, IIS7.5 and forward, Server.CreateObject(“MSWC.NextLink”) will not work. The DLL required is not installed into the OS and the line will cause an error. To fix this, you can download the below zip (Originally obtained from http://www.dllbank.com/n/nextlink.dll-download.html):

[download id=”6″ ]


Unzip it, in the URL bar of the explorer window you have that the file is in, type in cmd and hit enter, this opens a command prompt in the current folder. Then type in

%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\regsvr32.exe nextlink.dll

I was then able to get past the error.  I did test the file using virustotal here.  It has a zero Detection ratio.
