I was working with Ink and deploying my assemblies all over the place. Eventually I deployed to a win2k3 server and it starting throwing:

Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID {AAC46A37-9229-4FC0-8CCE-4497569BF4D1} from the IClassFactory failed due to the following error: 80040235

To resolve this, I went to:

And downloaded the Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 Recognizer Pack. Install that and you will no longer get that error.
Hope that helps, would have saved me 4 hours 🙂
