user's full name using ADSI

Trying to get a user's full name using ADSI. It works in our Win2000 Active Directory but fails when I try to get a user's full name from a trusted WinNT domain. The error is "Cannot create ActiveX component." Here's my code

Dim myObject As Objec
myObject = GetObject("WinNT://" & strDomain & "/" & strUsername & ",User"
Return myObject.FullName(

Any ideas why

Also: I tried using a LDAP path (LDAP://cn=Username, dc=Domain) and that didn't work either.
