    Active X can not create running Scriptlistener VB code in Creative Cloud Photoshop


      Currently, I am recieving an Active X can not create error when running this code. I use Visual Studio 2012 run as administrator in x86 mode, Creative Cloud 32bit run as administrator. OS is windows .


      I am able to access the com library for CC in VS. When I run into troubleshooting this  Script listener code, this type of code appears in several different functions throughout the application. I am getting an Active X error when the CreateObject("Photoshop.ActionDescriptor") is hit.


      I am also logged in as an administrator of the box. I have created the process from a scriptlister log with the CS6 Scriptlistener in CC.  


      Any direction or feedback is appreciated. I need to know if I am missing something obvious.


      Thank you,
