    • using the COM interop clsPDFCreatorClass, the class is created but the call to convert the excel file (*.xls) fails.

      The same call to convert a *.txt document works.

      When I open the PDFCreator.exe and try to add the same document (*.xls) ... it will not add the document. I can open a *.txt document OK; also the test page prints OK.

      I have Excel viewer 2003 installed on the VM.
