Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 303486 stated that the
problem happens with other versions, but the page prints

I get the same error and the page will not print at all.
I looked for the preview file mentioned in the error
message and it does not exist:
An error has occurred in the script on this page.

Line: 1210
Char: 1
Error: Unspecified error.
Code: 0

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

The problem is that access to DCOM has been restricted, and this can be
fixed using either DCOMCNFG (W2K) or Component Services (WXP).

I hope this is helpful to others and I'd like to point out that I didn't
find this solution and I'm very grateful to the person that told me of it.
