I have a problem with Acrobat and/or Distiller.

We have a system where the Distiller (6.0 Prof) is running. We start it via SRVANY as a job. It runs without any problems.

Now there is a VB 6.0 program, that merges a few PDF documents. for this I use

Set myPDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")

This runs smoothly also. But only a couple of hours. At some point this program crashes. The error message is like "There were problems creating a DirectX-Object".
If I stop the Distiller Job and start Distiller in the normal way, then this error does not occur...

The other problem is, that it's not clear where this error comes from. I cannot reproduce it; it just shows up after some time...

Has anybody here some experience with this problem? Any idea what could cause the crash?

Greetings from germany,
