Here's the situation. I've created a Windows service that queries a couple DB's to get info to populate a document created in a program called Solid Edge. Solid Edge has a very good, clean COM interface for manipulating its documents. In order to do this, however, I need to be able to create an instance (as you probably have already guessed) of the Solid Edge Application object. So simple task in VB
.NET, or so I thought.
I am receiving a "Cannot create ActiveX component." error, even when I have already opened the app on my own and am calling SEApp = GetObject(, "SolidEdge.Application") (this works in an Access program already in use.)
This is probably a permissions issue, but I am having trouble narrowing it down since I am using the networks uber-user Administrator account right now for my service.
Any and all thoughts would be really helpful.
