The plugin has to have an OLE interface (act as an OLE Server) for Visual
Basic to be able to 'control' it remotely via IAC. If the plugin is loaded
via Acrobat, often all you can do is 'ask' Acrobat to activate it's
functionality - not actually pass parameters to it etc.

Is there some particular action/task you are looking to do? Have you tried
the SENDKEYS function from Visual Basic - it's not the best solution but
_sometimes_ it works.
