AutoCAD LT 2007 usage via OLE Automation
Posted on 2006-10-20
I have installed AutoCAD 2007 LT and I am trying to automate it by means of OLE in MS Visual Basic 6, but it is failing. Creation of the AutoCAD.Application instance fails.
Set m_aaApp = CreateObject("AutoCAD.Application.17")
It hangs during one, two minutes and then returns the error: "Can't create ActiveX object".
During hang I saw AutoCADLT.exe process in "Task Manager".
Also, I had tried to start AutoCAD LT manually and to use GetObject(, "AutoCAD.Application.17") function in VB6 code, but it fails immediately.
All AuotoCAD's TLBs and libraries are installed in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\". acax17enu.tlb is here. acadauto.chm is provided, but it does not work.
I have checked AutoCAD application's settings inside "DCOM Config": they are default. What can cause it?
Thanks for advise!
