I have a VB 6 app. that creates an autocad drawing from dimensional data entered by the user. When the app gets to this line in the code "Set A2K = New AutoCAD.AcadApplication" I get the "ActiveX component cannot create object error." Error 429. The part that is odd is that if I run the application a second time the app runs fine with no errors. If I wait a little while and run the app again the error returns and then the second time it runs fine again. There must be something that is initialized the first time the Autocad dll tries to create a new acadapplication. Does anyone have an idea on how to make this work on the first try? Thanks in advance.
