ServiceManager and Writer GUI will not co-exist

Postby esc » Thu Jun 28, 2018 4:18 pm

I've been searching for an answer for a couple of hours now but have had no luck.

Using VB6 and a fresh install of OO4.1.5 on Win 10 Pro 32bit.

After calling CreateObject("com.sun.star.ServiceManager"), I can not open the OO GUI (from a desktop shortcut, the Start menu, or clicking on a file that would open with OO). There are no errors, the GUI just does not open.
If I call "Desktop.Terminate", or close soffice.bin from the Task Manager, all of the OO GUI instances I had tried to open will suddenly appear.

When I have a Writer window open, calling CreateObject("com.sun.star.ServiceManager") fails with a "can't create Active X object" error.

It seems that the ServcieManager and the OO GUI can not both exist at the same time.

Any ideas why this might be?

Lots of views, but no replies.
Did I post this in the right area?
Is this such a common occurrence that no one wants to bother answering again?
Or it it just that no one knows what might cause it?

If anyone can offer any insight into this issue, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

No-one will have the solution and I suspect few here will have VB6.

I have VB6 and OO4.1.2 on Windows 8 and calling CreateObject("com.sun.star.ServiceManager") from VB6 doesn't seem to cause any problems. All I can suggest is can you try it on another computer?
