COM Surrogate Errors

Am running Win XP SP2 with Classic ASP+VB6 dll's alongside ASP.NET+C# dll's.

I keep getting the following error … ‘COM Surrogate encountered a problem
and needs to shut down’. This requires me to do an IISReset and re-start
whatever I was doing, which is extremely frustrating. Google reveals that
this is a pretty common type of error but does not point me to any kind of
solution to it. MS's knowledge base appears pretty silent on this issue.

I have just rebuilt my PC from scratch and installed mostly MS products
(save the Oracle 9.2.04 ODP) so I cannot understand what could be the cause
of this problem. So if anybody has any advice (aside from installing W2K or
W2003) that may be of help I greatly appreciate it?


Further info
I have saved the contents of both the following ...
C:\DOCUME~1\b99 95730\LOCALS~1\ Temp\WER05bb.di r00\dllhost.exe .mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\b99 95730\LOCALS~1\ Temp\WER05bb.di r00\appcompat.t xt
.... (which are generated when the error occurs) and can send on.

A restricted width extract from appcompat.txt is as follows ...

Hi all, It should be possible to let inproc COM-components live in a surrogate process (for instance in the default Dllhost.exe surrogate process, for more info see http://msdn.microsoft.com search for: "DLL Surrogates (COM)"). Somehow this "feature" does not seem to work when running inproc COM-components launched within a python environment using the win32com package (the inproc component then lives in the python.exe process).

Hi, I am creating an unique index on surrogate key column. The surrogate key is a generate number always increasing on my dimension table. The only operation on the table is insert (no update and no delete). 1- Can I specify pctfree=0 for the unique index on the surrogate key without getting page splits since I am only inserting an increasing number?

>>Thanks for the response.... Point Taken but this is not the case. Thus, if a person writes a text file on her or his computer and does not use UNICODE to save it, the current code page is used. If this file is given to someone with some other current codepage, the file is not displayed correctly. Simply converting the file to Unicode will make the data display properly. When performing the encoding process the encoding will escape...
