Printing Word from IE

I have an app that creates word docs and then prints them.

I have had this working for awhile, now all of a sudden, the app hangs up when it tries to print.  I know now source code has changed. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong.

Here is the offending line of code.

            WordApp.Options.PrintDrawingObjects = True
            WordDoc.PrintOut(Background:=False, Append:=False)

I know this isn't much, but this did work several weeks ago (haven't used it since then). Not sure if the computer has had any updates installed.

Probably something to do with the security. Check if there are any changes in user/group or any other security related stuff on the target machine.

I forgot to close this early, so I'll give you the acceptance. Yes it was a security issue, I found that out within a couple of days.
