Win32OLE and PDF


#1

Does anyone know how to use Win32OLE to connect to an opened pdf
document ?

I tried this acrobat

require "win32ole"
WIN32OLE.new('AcroExch.App')

but I got this error :

pdfEbook.rb:12:in initialize': unknown OLE server:AcroExch.App’
(WIN32OLERuntimeError)
HRESULT error code:0x800401f3
Invalid class string from

Any help is appreciated…

Thanks

Though I don’t know the exact app name, try this:

  1. there was a thread on starting acrobat through ole (the poster used
    the same ID) maybe you can tyr his code - search for acrobat in the
    archives

  2. look for a thread named ‘Ruby and COM’ - somebody explains how to
    find out what is the exact app name
