Hello fellow developers :)

We are trying to write an OCR module, using the Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI), as per the following article:

(There are number of other sites with same or similar code - I am assuming they all came from this one source).

Unfortunatelly, we are not able to make this work. The second line
generates an error message "Class Not Registered".

We have tried number of different OS Versions (Win XP and 7) / Delphi versions (D7, D2007 and D2010)/ MS Office Versions (2003 and 2007), but no luck. The same error is reproducible every single time.

We have found few articles on the web describing other developers having similar issues, but have not seen a concrete solution to this problem.

Can someone advise if there are any known issues with the more recent versions of MODI, or if there is another way to make this work?

Ideally, I would like someone to provide a sample / instructions on how to get this working reliably on D2010.

Thank you for your help.
