Topic: ActiveX cannot create component

Hi there,
I'm creating a batch printing process..basically opening pdf docs from a folder and printing directly to a printer. Closing the doc.
Initially i was using the
AcroExch.AVDoc, AcroExch.PDDoc objects but i was getting the problem, cannot create activeX component:
Set m_oAcroApp = GetObject(, "AcroExch.App")
If Not acrobat_running Then
Set m_oAcroApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")
If fVisible Then
End If
End If

StartAcrobat = True

This works fine on my machine, but on another machine without the VB environment it throw up said error.
Basically i don't know what files to include in my setup.
The other machine only has Acrobat Reader also...does it need the full version...?
I also toyed around using the pdf.ocx...opening and printing from there...but won't work at get file, open and print from folder.)

has anyone came across this...or seen a similar proble. If so help would be appreciated.
