Help with Interop.Word problems

Hi gang,

Very sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I am at my wits end with this
thing and am in DESPERATE need of some assistance, ANY assistance...

I have a Service that I wrote that fetches a Word doc via FTPS and prints it
locally. The service was not working due to an error I could not trap (or
didn't understand), so I decided to just write a plain old Win Forms app to
do the job until I could figure out the service issue.

I write the Win Forms app, and whenever I get to the call to create a new
Word.Application instance, my code wanders off into the weeds, never to be
heard from again. I have tried:
wordApp = New Word.Application as well as wordApp =
CreateObject("Word.Application") and both produce the same results. However,
the CreateObject call would occaisionally throw a "Cannot create ActiveX
control" exception.

Now, here is the weird part. I have another Web app that uses the same code,
and it worked fine on my dev machine... until I hit this problem. Now
suddenly the Web app is doing the same thing. As far as I know, nothing has
changed on my system (except for perhaps a Windows update, which could be the

I have searched high and low on the Net for solutions, and have found many,
but none seem to work. I am also able to reproduce this on my deployment
machine, so one possibility I read that my OS was corrupted, does not seem

Can anyone shed some light on this, or guide me through to a solution? Help
me Obi Wan Kenobi... you're my only hope...

Please, anyone who has any insight/input/experience with this problem, help!

Frustrated, frantic, and feeling like an idiot,
