Unmanaged DLL Instantiation Fails in ASP.NET and Page Expires




I have developed a WebApplication in ASP.NET where it is required to
instantiate a DLL developed in VB 6.0. I have added the dll reference to
ASP.NET and using the following statement to instantiate the library:

Dim Package As New PkgUtil.Package

In my development PC the application runs fine, ie it instantiates the
library and I'm able to call the methods wrapped inside the library. The
application is running successfully.

The same application deployed on the live server fails to run. I have
debugged the application remotely and found that the above quoted statement
that instantiates the library is executing for ever and never returns to the
next statement after it.
Finally the web page expires or the user will be prompted for
re-authentication (supply user name and password). Even after supplying the
credentials a page will display a message "You are not authorized..."

My user account is having Administrative, Debuggers previleges in both the
development PC as well as in the live server.

Any ideas to solve this issue will be highly appreciated.
