Photo-Paint 11 Automation error ...
Hi Folks

Has anyone else noticed that the ole automation object for Photo-Paint 11 cannot be created using Corel Script (ver 8) unless PP11 is already running? I can easily call PP8 even when it's not running, but I get an 'object cannot be created' error when I try the same with PP11 -- yet, if I first start PP11 and then try again, it works fine.

Is there a work-around for this, apart from having to launch the application ahead of time?!

Thanks :)

If you fix the path (replace path to DLL with that to CorelPP.exe, it should work OK...

Let me know how it goes.
