I'm having a problem with the Merge Function of the Active X control.  I've got the control in several clients' program and it works fine in one program (that program is using the old version of  the control).  Currently I'm getting an error "Activex control cannot create object" when attempting to merge 2 documents.  I've been using the control for a long time and it's registered properly and works fine as far as producing PDFs from Access reports. Here's the code I'm using. Function MergePdfFiles is in a class I created for the control.

Public Sub TestMerge()

    Dim MergedFiles(1) As String
    Dim clspdf As New clsPDF_Redirect
    MergedFiles(0) = "N:\MyDocs\Vance\Images\_File1_0619125.pdf"
    MergedFiles(1) = "N:\MyDocs\Vance\Images\_File2_0619126.pdf"
    clspdf.MergePdfFiles "N:\MyDocs\Vance\Images\NewFile.pdf", MergedFiles()

End Sub

Function MergePdfFiles(OutputPDF As String, List2Merge() As String) As Boolean

MergePdfFiles = oPDF.Utility_Merge_PDF_Files(OutputPDF, List2Merge())

End Function

   The thing that jumps at me is this line:

Dim clspdf As New clsPDF_Redirect

   Specifically, I do not recognize the clsPDF_Redirect object. I would check that the object is properly referenced (does it exist?).

   I would also recommend to use the latest version of PDF reDirect Pro (it's a free upgrade if you have an old version) and the latest version of the ActiveX as well which is available here:

   Otherwise, can you provide more info? It sounds like one program works fine, but not the other, on the same machine. Is that right?

   Hopefully we will be able to make sense of the problem.

I uninstalled/reinstalled PDF reDirect Pro and it works now.
