TWordApplication errors with Word 2010: Call rejected by callee

I am coming across an intermittent error with Word 2010 automation. When copying a table from one instance of word to another, I get a 'call rejected by callee' error. The same code works perfectly on earlier versions of Word.

Has anyone else seen/overcome this problem, or got any ideas that might help me?

Below is a very simple example that triggers the problem. Create an empty Word template file as C:\emptytemplate.dot, and another with a single table in it as C:\templatewithtable.dot. Place two TWordApplications on a form and run the code below. I am getting the error consistently within 3 runs of the application.

This only happens in Office 2010 - the problem does not exist in earlier versions of Windows. I am using Delphi 2009 and the Word XP TWordApplication components on Windows 7.

Thanks,

Gary

  WordApplication1.Documents.Add(vTemplatePath,vNewTemplate,vDocumentDefinition,vDocVisible);
  WordApplication2.Documents.Add(vTablePath,vNewTemplate,vDocumentDefinition,vDocVisible);
  WordApplication1.Visible := True;
  WordApplication2.Visible := False;
  for i := 0 to 10 do
  begin
    WordApplication2.ActiveDocument.Select;
    WordApplication2.Selection.Tables.Item(1).Range.Copy;
    WordApplication1.Selection.Paste;
  end;
  WordApplication1.Disconnect;
  WordApplication2.Disconnect;
  WordApplication2.Quit;
end;
