    [CS3 VB] Launching/activating InDesign from third program

    liedzeit Level 2
      I need to activate (and if it is not running) start InDesign from another program - on Windows. Then InDesign should load some file. On the Mac I would call an AppleScript. I thought it should be possible with VB but I am not able to make it work. I tried this. (After this I would call JS to do the real work.)

      Set myInDesign = CreateObject("InDesign.Application.CS3")
      myInDesign.Activate

      What is the correct approach?

      Thank you,
      Ralf
