Server error in Asp.Net web app, Office / Excel Interop Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC

IF you should happen to get an error like the following when saving an excel (or other office document I guess) workbook, try opening Excel/Word etc manually and see if the product needs activation! I came across this error earlier today after the project was working 100% and it turned out I just needed to activate the product!

Thanks Microsoft, you just wasted an hour of my time today trying to sort it out!
