Error trying to use Crystal Reports Viewer in ASP for displaying an MS Access report

We had a nice setup where an ASP document called Crystal Reports Viewer to view an MS Access Report. Worked fine on Windows Server 2003. We need to retire the server but are having a problem on the new server (Windows Server 2012 R2).

Components were registered And Crystal Reports Viewer 2013 was downloaded. However, when trying to display the program, we receive the error

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01ad'

ActiveX component can't create object 'CrystalReports.ObjectFactory.2'

/btSales/reportPageViewer.asp line 119

Line 119 in the report is as follows:

"Set objFactory = CreateObject("CrystalReports.ObjectFactory.2")

I've followed instructions from random sites searched on the Internet, but still can get by this error. Thank You

    Hi William,

    Are you still using the CR RDC and CRViewer in your app or did you update to CR for .NET?

    .NET does not work in ASP app's nor does VB Scripts.

    If you are still using XI R2 RDC runtime then unforntunately it's not supported on Windows Server 2012.
