COMException: Failure

COMException: Catostrphic failure

When I added a "dll" reference in the web project.
I was able to instantiate the class OK. But when I tried
to set the properties, it failed with
"COMExcepti on: Catostrphic failure".

Any idea?

Thanks.

Hi Peter:

Thanks for the reply. We are going nuts over this.
Here are more details.

1. Created windos application.
2. Added reference to this COM dll.
3. Here is the code:
Dim aPDF As aspPDF.EASYPDFC lass
aPDF = New aspPDF.EASYPDFC lass()
aPDF.AddText("a sdsdsa")
It creates the instance successfully, but fails at last
line with the message below:

An unhandled exception of
type 'System.Runtime .InteropService s.COMException'
occurred in WindowsApplicat ion1.exe
Additional information: Catastrophic failure.

The dll is a aspEasyPdf dll which allows creating PDF
documents.

Thanks.

Hi Damaji,

Can you post more information about your project for me to reproduce theproblem?
I would like to know what is the "dll" used for.
Have you used the dll in a legacy VB or C/C++ program? Did it work well?To narrow down the problem, can you try to create a new console project ora windows project ( if the dll is GUI based) to reference the dll to see ifthe problem persists?

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Damaji,

I have tested your code and I can reproduce the problem. I think it is the
issue how aspeasypdf design.
You can try the code below which will work on my machine.

Dim PDF As aspPDF.EASYPDFC lass
PDF = New aspPDF.EASYPDFC lass
PDF.OnStartPage (Nothing) 'I think the line code is a key point.
PDF.AddText("fs adfsdfsdf")
PDF.Save("test. pdf")
MsgBox("DONE")

You may have a try and let me know the result.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the reply and finding.
Yes, it works, it still has other problem but as you said
it must be with aspEasyPdf design.

Thanks a lot.
