We have used OLE activation with Adobe Reader in both VB6 and VS6 C++ applications for a long time. When Reader X is installed (in either XP or Windows 7) this function (CreateLink in VB6) no longer works and hangs the application until the AcroRd32.exe process in the Task Manager is ended. Adobe 9 reader and before work fine. Has this feature been purposely removed?
Is the protection mode enabled or not?
Yes it was. Thank you - turning it off fixed the problem.
Is it possible to allow Adobe Reader to work as usual without globally turning off Protected Mode? An exception of some kind?
