Hi,

I have tried the following:

Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf7.Doc")
Response.Write("License: " & theDoc.License & "<br>")

This works fine, results in Professional License

Then tried the following:

Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf7.Doc")
theDoc.AddImageUrl "http://www.google.com/"
theDoc.Save "C:\pdfs\test.pdf"

I have set the permissions correctly, but recieve an error:

ABCpdf error '80070000'

Unable to render HTML. No MSHTML document is available.

/abcpdftest/pdftest.asp, line 11

Line is: theDoc.AddImageUrl "http://www.google.com/"

Any help is appreciated.

Did you ever find a solution to the problem you posted about "Unable to render HTML. No MSHTML document is available." in abcPDF7? I have the same issue now after installing it on one of my servers. Thanks.

I changed back to abcPDF version 6.1 proffesional COM (not .net) and it worked without a problem. I only needed the COM version, not the .net version. That was my solution - not much of one but it works!

Still could not get this to work, what components does MSHTML rely on?

sanjshah12,
  I recently loaded abcPDF7 .Net onto a Windows 2003 Server, wincing, because I was afraid of seeing the same problem that you did, and which I encountered on a different server. To my surprise, it worked flawlessly. It made me think about this question, so I have done a little investigation, and this is what I have come up with:

1.) The problem ("bad") server has asp.net versions 1.1, 2 and 4 on it. The "good" server has only asp.net versions 1.1 and 2.  On the good server, the site is operating under asp.net version 2.0.50727. On the bad server, I had already removed the abcpdf7 component. I also noticed the site is operating under asp.net version 1.1.  I switched the asp.net version to 2.0.50727, and reinstalled the abcPDF7 .Net component. Guess what? It worked this time on the "bad"server.

Please try that out. Make sure the site is running in asp.net version 2, and run the site. If that does not work, remove abcpdf7 and then reinstall leaving your site set at asp.net 2. It should work.

Thanks code4food for looking into this, I'll check .Net version and ensure its running .NET 2 as suggested and let you know the result.

Unfortunatelly, all the solutions didn't work for me.
My solution consists in installing the latest version on ABCpdf, version 8.
The default behavior presents the same problem but there is an intresting workaround. From v. 8 ABCpdf includes a native Gecko render engine instead of relying on IE. So, after creating the document, set the Gecko engine... and enjoy!
This is how it is done
<%
Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf8.Doc")
theDoc.HtmlOptions.Engine=1
%>

Open in new window
