Error "ActiveX component can't create object"

Developer: RhinoScript
Summary: Error “ActiveX component can't create object” returned when running a script on 64-bit Rhino 5.


A script which runs on a 32-bit version of Rhino 5 returns a ActiveX component can't create object error when executed on a 64-bit version of Rhino 5.


The script was trying to create a reference to an ActiveX (COM) object using VBScript's CreateObject method.

The 32-bit version of RhinoScript can create and use 32-bit COM components only, and the 64-bit version can create and use only 64-bit COM components.
