    Run-time-error '429': ActiveX component can't create object

    Hi,

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    by running this soubroutine, line Set AcroApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App") throws this error:

    Run-time-error '429':

    ActiveX compoenent can't create object


    I have added these references to call Adobe Reader:
    Adobe Acrobat 10.0 Type Library
    Adobe Acrobat Browser Control Library 1.0


    What is wrong?

    Thank you very much!

    Regards,
    Lloyd

    I don't think those are the references you need.

    What Adobe software do you have installed?
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    Hi Norie, I have installed Adobe Reader Version 11.0.0.

    I think what you need is Adobe Acrobat, which isn't the same as Acrobat Reader.

    Hi shg,

    your code throws this error in line Dim AcroApp As Acrobat.CAcroApp:

    Compile error:
    User-defined type not defined


    Attached there is a snapshot of the referneces I use. I have no clue which is the right one for the Acrobat.CAcroApp object, so I just included all that have to do with Adobe.

    @Norie: Are you sure this not makable with Adobe Reader? I am asking because Adobe Reader is the read only version of Adobe Acrobat. All I wanna do is read the pdf.

    Regards,
    Lloyd

    All the code I've seen for this sort of things is Adobe Acrobat.

    I did find a useful link earlier, I'll post it later.

    As I said, the only reference I set was Acrobat -- not Adobe Acrobat, just Acrobat.

    Hmm,....
    this reference is not available in my list. Which version of Adobe Reader you have installed on your machine?
