Topic: Acrobat.tlb in VB.NET

I have a Setup application for a Windows service written in VB.NET. This setup application installs the Acrobat.tlb (and an Interop.Acrobat.dll) file when the install is run.

The problem that I'm having is that initially these files were flagged as permanent. After the first testing release we found a problem, uninstalled the service, made a fix and reinstalled the service. However, when we uninstalled the service the 2 resources files listed above where not removed. After the reinstallation, the service has not worked. When we make a call to PDDoc.Open it always returns 0.

We installed this service on a fresh machine and it works fine. What would cause the Acrobat calls to stop working after an uninstall and reinstall? Does anyone have any ideas on how we can fix this? Thanks.
