Activex component can't create object

Activex component can't create object

(OP)
This error message pops up anytime I want to get object or create object at the
Set App line. Does anyone one know what causes this? I'm thinking it has to do with a trust or security setting.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

RE: Activex component can't create object

(OP)
Hi Skip,

Thanks for checking my post.

Reflections 2014. Whether I GetObject from an existing instance or CreateObject I get the error: Activex component can't create object in the Set sentence.

I think it might be a permissions problem in Reflections Settings, but I can't find it.

In this example, GetObject attaches to a running instance of Reflection by using the Automation server name (the default AutomationServerName value "Reflection Workspace"). This technique allows you to identify a particular Reflection instance even if multiple Reflection instances are active.

Dim ApplicationObject As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject
Set ApplicationObject = GetObject("Reflection Workspace")
ApplicationObject.CreateControl("C:\Users\[Username]\Documents\Attachmate\Reflection\MySession.rd5x")



In this second example, GetObject attaches to a running instance of Reflection . The comma after GetObject indicates that the first argument has been omitted. The line continuation character, an underscore preceded by a space, is used to break up the long line of code.

Dim App As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject
Set App = GetObject(, _ "Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject")



In this last example, GetObject opens a new instance of Reflection by returning a reference to the ApplicationObject object. The first argument includes an empty string. The line continuation character, an underscore preceded by a space, is used to break up the long line of code.

Dim App As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject
Set App = GetObject("", _ "Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject")

RE: Activex component can't create object

I'm sure that you have access to Reflections HELP. here's a site that may also be helpful. http://support.attachmate.com/techdocs/2183.html

I WAS an Attachmate Extra user, almost exclusively for screen scrapping for my users. I coded in Excel VBA and dumped my results into Excel for further processing by myself or other users, so my experience in Reflections is nil.
