WebBrowser in exe giving automation error

Hi,

I'm new to this area...
I've got this VB code to work perfectly, but when saved to an exe, the file gives this error:

"Run-time error '-2147221248 (80040100)'
Automation error
Trying to revoke a drop target that has not been registered"

On the MSDN site, it says this is by design.  Is there any work around?  (I already tried using:
 While WebBrowser1.QueryStatusWB(OLECMDID_PRINT) <> OLECMDF_SUPPORTED And OLECMDF_ENABLED
-Wend loop before going to print and it just hung VB up)

Here is my code so far:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://www.mysql.com")
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER
    WebBrowser1.Stop
    Unload Me
End Sub


Thanks!

Try this, add two timers and 1 webbrowser to your form


Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
Timer1.Interval = 1
Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
Timer1.Enabled = False
WebBrowser1.Navigate "http://www.mysql.com"
End Sub

Private Sub Timer2_Timer()
Timer2.Enabled = False
Unload Me
End Sub

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DocumentComplete(ByVal pDisp As Object, URL As Variant)
Debug.Print pDisp
If (pDisp = WebBrowser1) Then
WebBrowser1.ExecWB 6, 2, 0, 0
Timer2.Interval = 3000
Timer2.Enabled = True
End If
End Sub
