Trying to get share list. Error 429 Cannot create activex component

P: n/a
Hi There,

I'm trying to get a listing of shares from a server. The server is a
linux box running samba and LDAP for directory services (just for
background info!)

I have some code which I copied out of the MSDN library which is
supposed to get a list of available shares from a windows server.

However when I try to access the server with this code, I get the
following error > Error 429 'Cannot create ActiveX component'. If I try
to access another client machine on the network (running WinXP) it
works, it also works if I reference my local computer name (WinXP).

Can someone shed some light on why this might be happening and if they
know a work around? I 'think' it might have something to do with the
Lanmanserver part of the code, but I don't quiet understand why...

Thanks for your help,


Dim fs As IADsFileService
Dim share As IADsFileShare
Dim strMachine As String

strMachine = "server"
fs = GetObject("WinNT://" & strMachine & "/LanmanServer")

if (fs.class = "FileService") Then
For Each share In fs
Next share
End If

fs = Nothing
share = Nothing
