Printing a word document from web form

2 New Member
Hi All,

I am trying to first edit and then print a word document (saved on web server). The code works fine in debug mode, but when i deploy this to web server, then i get the following error.

Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {000209FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070005.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Unauthor izedAccessExcep tion: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {000209FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070005.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNE T on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="tr ue"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAM E) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties " and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

Here is the code.

  1. Dim missing As Object = System.Reflection.Missing.Value
  3.         ' Dim filename As String = Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO") & "/" & System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("filename")
  4.         Dim filename As Object = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("website") & System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("filename")
  5.         ' template file name

  8.         Dim isVisible As Object = True
  9.         Dim [readOnly] As Object = False
  12. Dim aDoc As Word.Document = WordApp.Documents.Open(filename, missing, [readOnly], missing, missing, missing, missing, missing, missing, missing, missing, isVisible) ' Activate the document so it shows up in front aDoc.Activate();
  13.             ' Add the copyright text and a line break
  14.             aDoc.Bookmarks.Item("CaseNo").Range.Text = casenumber
  15.             aDoc.Bookmarks.Item("Technician").Range.Text = ownername
  16.             aDoc.Bookmarks.Item("Date").Range.Text = printdate
  17.             aDoc.PrintOut()
Please help. This is very urgent.

Thanks in advance.

I assume that you have the .net framework is installed.

Open start->settings->control panel -> Users and password (on W2K).
Or right click the folder(s) you which to share. Choose the sharing tab,
and then the permissions button. On the new dialog click add. Choose look in "your computer name". Find the ASPNET user in the list!

If there is no ASPNET user i would check if you have .NET and ASPNET
installed at all. Please post result.

Thanks for your reply. I have ASPNET installed on the server. Now instead of saving the documents, i am directly sending it to printer and looks like it is working now. I have not yet tested on the server.

Will post again, once i am done with full testing.

Hi All, I have a small problem at hand and am looking for suggestions. I have created a wrapper for word 2000 for our application which is in VB.NET 2003.

I have written for word 2000 sothat the code works for other higher versions of word.
