SaveAs2 For Word 2010 not working with Client PC having Word 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have developed a WinForm Application with VB.Net (VS2010) having Office 2010 Professional Installed, and it is 64-bit Windows 7 Platform. The program opens a .doc and .rtf format document, and attempts to save it in htm format. I am using following commands:


    Dim sFilePath as String = "C:\ABC\file.doc"

    Dim oApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application
            Dim oDoc As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document
            Dim sTempFileName As String = System.IO.Path.GetTempFileName()
    oDoc = oApp.Documents.Open(sFilePath)
    oApp.Visible = False
    oDoc = oApp.ActiveDocument
    oDoc.SaveAs2(sTempFileName, FileFormat:=WdSaveFormat.wdFormatHTML,CompatibilityMode:=Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdCompatibilityMode.wdWord2007)
            oDoc = Nothing
            oApp = Nothing

    All goes fine with development and running on development PC, but when I publish it for offline installation, and deploy it on Client PC having Windows XP with Office 2007, it gives error on oDoc.SaveAs2 line, and program crashes. I have googled enough but could not find a solution to it. Somebody please help me ASAP
