Sequenced Office 2010 - Powerpoint not able to respond to VBA requests RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Morning All,

      I sequenced office via http://www.softgridblog.com/?p=153.  The sequencing works fine.  I loaded the App-V in an offline local client.   Everything works fine.

    My issue I am not able to connect to PowerPoint via VBA. 

    Would someone please try the following with sequenced Office 2010 and tell me if it works:


    Dim obj
    Set obj = CreateObject("Powerpoint.Application")
    obj.Visible = True

    I get the following error



    Note the code above works great when not in App-V

  • Hello,

    Since you have virtualized PowerPoint, the operating system does not know about powerpoint.

    I would suggest you execute the script within the virtualized environment.
