Launching Word 2003 in prog creates exception

Launching Word 2003 in prog creates exception

Post by Bob » Tue, 15 Aug 2006 02:28:15


I'm getting error 8007007e when executing the following code.
Dim word As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application
Dim doc As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document
doc = word.Documents.Open(WordFileName.ToString)
doc.Activate()
word.Visible = True

This code works on the development machine, but does not work on a test
machine. The test machine is set up to use Office 2003, same as the
development one.
I can open the document directly with Word 2003, no problem. so the doc is
not corrupted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bob

Did you send over the inerop dll to the production machine?

if i remember correctly 8007007e="Createobject failed" so this
automaticly means that
this is a COM error

you are missing a dependancy or the dependancy is a com component and not
correctly registred

.Net creates automaticly a proxy dll if you set a direct reference ( i
prefer to use late binding when i use COM components )
so you probably forgot to include the automaticly generated proxy dll (
should be in the BIN directory )

Yes, they got detected when I made the setup program and got installed in
the application's folder. There are actually 6 files that got installed.

What would be the name of the generated proxy dll that needs to be included?
I look at the files in the application's folder. I have a file
office.dll,
Microsoft.Office.interop.Word.dll,
Microsoft.Office.interop.SmartTag.dll,
Microsoft.Office.tools.Common.dll,
Microsoft.Office.tools.Common.xml
Microsoft.Office.tools.Word.dll
Microsoft.Office.tools.Word.xml
Microsoft.Vbe.Interop.dll
Microsoft.VisualStudio.OfficeTools.Controls.ManagedWrapper.dll
Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Runtime.dll
Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Runtime.tlb
Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Runtime.xml
VSTOStorageWrapper.Interop.dll
These are all the files whose references got detected automatically and
included when I made the installer project.
In my application development project's references I have
Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word in the list.

Thanks for your help.
Bob

Thanks Michael
I'm not using late binding because that means that I gotta put Otion strict
to Off and also that I don't get any intellisense when I develop.
I need to find a way to resolve this problem using early binding.

Thanks
Bob
