I'm running vista enterprise and visual studio 2005 with Office 2007.
I'm trying to do word automation under asp.net using vb.net.
I can create a document using the following code..
Dim oDoc As Word.Document
oDoc = New Word.Document
oDoc.SaveAs(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath( "/Flyer") & "\" & "lala.doc")
I get the error command failed. Com execption on the saveas line.
The folder does exist. I have given every account I can think of permission on the entire IIS folder tree.
I can manually save a document there from word. I have impersonation using my own account which is a domain admin and local admin on the box. Visual Studio 2005 is running as an admin. UAC is turned off. Word opens fine for me without any popups.
I use virtually identical code to create and save a document on a windows 2003 server with word 2003, but try as I might I cannot get past this error on my development machine. As the document won't save I can't do any further development as I won't know
what it looks like hehe.
Winword appears in task manager with my username next to it when the page runs. Any ideas ... I'm going mad here :)
Thanks for any help

When at runtime you put a breakpoint on the oDoc.SaveAs(... line, try adding a watch to inspect the value of
HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath( "/Flyer") & "\" & "lala.doc"
What value does that expression have? Can you post it?
