Word Automation and Upgrading to Office 2010

Word Automation and Upgrading to Office 2010

With the new release of Microsoft Office 2010 there are two ways to install the new office 2010 system. The first is to install the office system in 32 bit or 64 bit mode, and the second is to use the one click online installation. The first method is the only method that we at Adept will support, the second we do not. The reason why is the second method uses a virtualized system using the CVH.exe and the CVHSVE DCOM security settings. This will NOT work with document automation. Winword.exe MUST exist on the server, or workstation that accesses the automation processes.

If you are getting the famous COM Class Factory error 80040154, or the error: cannot create the active x component, and you have setup the run environments already in the DCOM rights on the server, check to see if the version of office is standard or virtualized. To find out what version, click run on the startup menu, type in winword. If Microsoft word opens you have the correct installation, if you get a message that it does not exist, you have the virtualized version. To correct this problem you will need to uninstall the virtualized version and install the normal or standard version. FYI the standard installation is 599 meg, the virtualized online installation is 1,591 KB.
