Using the SamplesThe samples included in the OWebComp.exe file require Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher. The majority of the samples are client-side scripts and can be run using a FILE:// protocol. Therefore, a Web server is not needed to run the client-side script samples. The server-side script samples do require a Web server configured with Microsoft Internet Information Server 4.0 or 5.0.
Some of the samples use the VBScript CreateObject statement to use the FileSystemObject for file access. If you receive errors running the samples, check your security settings in Internet Explorer to confirm that you can script ActiveX controls.
Problems with Server-Side UseYou should be aware that the Office 2000 Web Components are not designed for server-side use, and you may encounter problems if you use the components on a server with a high number of concurrent user connections. Many of these issue are addressed in the Office XP Web Components, and you should consider using the Office XP Web Components for large-scale server-side solutions.
