MS Word Fails to Open When Called From Client-Side Script
Last edited: 28 Oct 2005
The information in this article applies to product:
e-Work all Issue When MS Word is called from a client-side script, i.e. CreateObject("Word.Application"), the following error message appears in the user's browser: ActiveX component can't create object: 'Word.Application'. The Win32 clients do not exhibit this problem. Resolution Assuming MS Word is installed on the user's workstation, this error is probably due to security settings in Internet Explorer. Try the following: Go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Security --> Trusted sites. Add the website that is hosting the e-Work web components. If this does not resolve the problem, check the ActiveX security settings for the trusted sites.
