This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Symptoms
If you open an ASP page that calls Server.CreateObject to create a Windows Script Component (WSC) object in Internet Explorer 6 on Microsoft Windows XP, you may receive the following error message:
HTTP 500.100 - Internal Server Error - ASP error
Internet Information Services

Error Type: Server object, ASP 0177 (0x8007000E) Ran out of memory
This problem occurs after a random period of time. This problem does not occur in Microsoft Windows 2000.
Cause
The WSC runtime (Scrobj.dll) relies on monikers (Urlmon.dll) to load WSC files. When they are used in ASP pages, WSC files are frequently loaded and unloaded (this includes Urlmon.dll). The problem occurs after Urlmon.dll has been loaded and unloaded several times.
