I am running a vbscript program from a new computer and have started receiving an error message stating that ActiveX compnent can't create object Chilkat.SFTP. I checked Windows 7 programs and features and the Chilkat SSH and SFTP ActiveX component shows as installed.

Could the problem be that the new system I am running the program from is 64 bit as opposed to the old system which is 32 bit?

If a64 bit system is causing the problem, does Chilkat have an SSH/SFTP ActiveX module that will work in Visual Basic program on a 64 bit system?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Jehines, I think the 32 vs 64 bit may very well be the issue, please find the 64 bit version the components on Chilkat's site at: http://www.chilkatsoft.com/downloads_ActiveX.asp

There are instructions specific for x64 that should help you.
