Cannot find Microsoft Word Application in DCOM RRS feed

  • Question

  • User232858574 posted


    I would like to config the Microsoft Word Application in DCOM for some function in my project.  So, I completely installed the Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 (32-bit version) in my server and go to the DCOM Config.  Actually, I can't find the object "Microsoft Word Application" but the "Microsoft Excel Application" is here.

    I don't know it should cause by the OS version or not.  The OS is using Microsoft Server 2003 R2 64-bit Edition with SP2.

    Do anyone have advise for me?

    Hi, guys.

     It's Microsoft's tradition to add unnamed COM-components for it's Word Applications.

    If this problem actual for you still, you should be find Application Identifier in your Register (for example {08655947-3AD4-4A46-8381-29BD55FEEEE9} ).

    1. Find in way HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT->AppID your required winword.exe.

    2. See the AppId attribute (key).

    3. Using this AppId as key find DCOM component of Word with this value as name.

    PS You may use this AppId to search name of DCOM components in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT->CLSID in general case (e.g. for Excel) (See key "By Default"). For Word case it's not necessary, because name of component equal it's AppID.

    As others have mentioned you can find the GUID alias for MS Word in the registry, but I couldn't find it as described

    Instead under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Application.12\CLSID listed an ID that matched with my DCOM, still testing if this solves my root problem with Word interop, but I'll keep you posted.

    I see several versions of Word.Application.* in my registry, 11=Word 2003, 12=Word 2007 and 14=Word 2010 (link)

    I'm using Windows Server 2008 x64 with Word 2007 installed (only office app).
