OLE error code 0x80040000a: Not able to bind to the source

Dec 2, 2010 12:57 PM

We are using MS Visual FoxPro 9, SP2 in our product.  We use the following code to create an OLE Object and open a PDF file before we attach/embed it into the backend database.





= CREATEOBJECT('Form') && Create a Form




.ADDOBJECT("oleObject", "oleAddObject") && Add OLE object







     OLECLASS = "" && Server name DOCUMENTFILE = gcfile && This file must exist OLETYPEALLOWED = 0






With Acrobat Reader 9.4.1, this code works fine. With Acrobat Reader X (v10), we recive the following error when issuing the AddObject command;


OLE error code 0x80040000a: Not able to bind to the source


I have checked the registry and the AcroExch.Document / AcroExch.Document.7 information appears to be registered correctly.  I have tried manually re-registering all the DLL's in the Reader folder, with no luck.  I have been unable to track down what the root cause of this issue might be.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

    It would probably work if you disable Protected Mode, since it'll only have a single process in that case, but that hardly fixes the problem for when you want it on.
