    An exception occurred when instantiating a COM object.

      Hi,

       

      We are testing CF 10 on 2012 R2 with an old CF application. I understand COM objects only work with 32 bit CF, so I have installed the 32 bit version, but I am receiving the following error:

       

      An exception occurred when instantiating a COM object.            

                  The cause of this exception was that: AutomationException: 0x80040154 - Class not registered.

       

      I found this old article mentioning to register typeviewer.dll - http://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/kb/coldfusion-mx-class-registered-error.html but I am unable to locate this dll anywhere.

       

      Is anyone able to provide advice on how to resolve this issue.

       

      Thanks

      Elise
