I am using PDF Creator from within some Microsoft Access 2003 applications, from within a VBA module ala:
Set PDFPrinter = New PDFCreator.clsPDFCreator
It seems that sometimes the instance of the process PDFCreator.exe that is spawned to create the PDF file does not terminate properly, probably due to poor programming on my part. Unfortunately that means the next time the user tries to use it to create a file they get the error message something like "Unable to start PDF Creator".
Is there any way to programmatically tell if an instance of PDFCreator is already running, and, if so, terminate it?
(Note, I am using an older version, 1.1.0 I believe.)
Thanks in advance for any help! --Fred
