Default 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?!

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

Let me know how it goes.
