Topic: ACRODISTXLib.PdfDistiller Object creation in vb6
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 105558

Hi all,

Have an application in vb6. Opens word doc, prints to PS-file via Distiller printer, and converts to pdf with ACRODISTXLib.PdfDistiller.

Problem : On some client systems, program gives error message "can't create ActiveX Object" when I do

Private WithEvents localDistiller As ACRODISTXLib.PdfDistiller

Set localDistiller = New ACRODISTXLib.PdfDistiller

Altough it works fine at my workplace & home-computer, it doesn't work on some other machines (one of it is XP, another NT4) located in another company site.

Anybody any ideas???

Found also a post on this forum concerning this problem, but it wasn't answered :
