I am using the code from this example: http://www.example-code.com/sql/http_post_form.asp
I have downloaded the activeX files and registered them on my server, it is running windows 2012 server 64bit.
When I run the stored procedure : [ChilkatSample]
I get the error: Failed to create ActiveX component
I am using SQL Server 2014 express edition
Please advise what I need to do to get it to work.

The ActiveX needs to be registered on the computer where SQL Server runs. If SQL Server runs as a 32-bit process, then make sure to download and register the 32-bit ActiveX. If SQL Server runs as a 64-bit process, then make sure to download and register the 64-bit ActiveX.
Be sure to carefully follow the directions for ActiveX registration here: http://www.chilkatsoft.com/downloads_ActiveX.asp
It is very easy to make a mistake. Also, see the note about the MSVC 9.0 runtime libs needing to be present:
Finally, Chilkat posted a C# .NET application that will examine a system to see if the Chilkat ActiveX is registered. You can run the 32-bit build to check the 32-bit Chilkat registration, or you can run the 64-bit build to check the 64-bit Chilkat registration.
