    CreateObject Problem

    dbldutch Level 1
      I'm having a problem with the CreateObject and CFObject items in ColdFusion. I'm using Windows XP and CFMX 7.2. I get the following error when I use the following code.

      pdfCOM = CreateObject("COM", "BCLeasyPDF.easyPDF")

      An exception occurred when instantiating a Com object.
      The cause of this exception was that: AutomationException: 0x8007007e - .

      I don't think it has anything to do with what I'm trying to connect to, I think it has to be something with permissions or something. I've verified that the program is installed at "BCLeasyPDF.easyPDF" is found in RegEdit. I've also tried CFObject to try and connect to "Word.application" but that also does not work.

      Any help or leads would be quite helpful.
