Accessing AcroExch in Acrobat 9 - Adobe Acrobat SDK

Is there something special or different to communicate to Acrobat 9 plug-ins through OLE now with the server sider DLL change to Acrobat 9 and IE7? For example the following code works with Acrobat 8 50 Set oAcroExchApp = GetObject("", "AcroExch.App") 60 Set oGfrPlugin = oAcroExchApp.GetInterface("GfrPdfModify.Plugin") 70 IsDocNeedSaving = oGfrPlugin.DocNeedsSaving(sDocId) but it is not working with Acrobat 9. Thanks...

    I don't understand what your code is trying to do...Can you explain where this code is being executed and what it is attempting to accomplish?

    Thanks

    Senecarr,

    Please let us know which line is giving you the problem and what is GfrPdfModify.Plugin. Is it an Adobe plugin or created by you.

    This is the VB side of code that is attempting to communicate with an Acrobat Plug-in. The code works fine in Acrobat 8, but with Acrobat 9, line 50 fails to get an object because Acrobat 9 is acting as an in-Process DLL when run inside of IE7 now.

    You are talking about IE7 and then Acrobat COM programming - these two things don't go together.

    either you are talking to the stand-alone Acrobat application via the COM/OLE interfaces _OR_ you're working with the ActiveX control (AcroPDF.dll) that is used in the browser. Trying to "mix and match" the two has NEVER been supported.

    So is it possible to communicate with an Acrobat plug-in when acrobat is only being used as a dll in IE7?

    It MAY be possible but it's certainly NOT supported. Never has been. If it worked with Acrobat 8 - it was sheer luck.

    It worked with Acrobat 8 and 7. Both of them actual create an Acrobat.exe when a file is viewed inside of internet explorer.

    So would there be a recommended way to communicate between an Acrobat Plug-in that runs for a file being viewed in browser, and another program?

    Yes, with Acrobat 9, each browser instance is a new copy of Acrobat.

    I am sure that if you can get a handle to the actual instance of Acrobat in the specific browser instance, you can communicate with it.
