the following error:

Server execution failed

VRInterop.Appointment..ctor(String publicFolder, String subject, String body)
at VR.Confirm.ibtConfirm_Click(Object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e) in
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\vr\confirm.aspx.cs:line 162

The application calling this class is an ASP.Net app in C#. The server is
2000 Server and it has Office XP installed. There is a public folder
residing in Exchange 2000 and windows authentication is being used across the

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
