Topic: ServPDF-webbased PDF Converter - MS COM Question

I have developed a webbased Office to PDF Converter (ServPDF - http://www.goermezer.de).
With this server solution users can upload Microsoft Office Documents via a web form and get a PDF Document as a download or it opens with the Adobe Reader plugin.
The installer includes:
* buildin webserver
* server application
* Ghostscript 8.14
* a postscript printer driver
* python and a complete development environment for developing your own python server pages (spyce)
It works fine so far. But Powerpoint can only be opened once to printout a postscript file. Therefore it has a workaround by letting the user wait while someone other converts from Powerpoint to PDF. Word and Excel can run in multiple instances.
Do anybody know how to run multiple instances of Powerpoint 2000 or XP via MS COM ?
