COM Interop

Hi there,

two days ago I bought Aspose.Words for .NET and I’m still trying to get it up and running from within VB6. I can use Intellisense in VB6, all methods and properties are exposed correctly but the moment I try to access one of the objects I get the error message “ActiveX component can’t create object”, Error number 429.

I also tried to install Aspose.Words on another machine (32Bit Windows)…same result…I tried late binding as well as early binding, always with the same result.

Even when I try to use VBscript as it is specified in the Aspose.Words help-file I get the same error:

This is my test-code, the error occurs when CreateObject is run:
Dim helper
Set helper = CreateObject(“Aspose.Words.ComHelper
Dim doc
Set doc = helper.Open(“c:\temp\xx.doc”)

Please help

Best regards
