i had a problem with my office software and now cannot convert PDF to DXF. I have tried the add ins in office but when I run the *.msi file from within Progecad it only appears to get half way and stops. Any suggestions. PDF printers are loaded and opperational.
Hi Richard Relph,
Your problems might be caused by the PDF to DXF requiring VBA to work properly. As you suspect, all of these components are deeply interconnected. What happens when you press ALT-F11 from progeCAD? The VBA editor IDE should open.
By the *.msi file "within Progecad" are you referring to:
C:\Program Files\progeSOFT\progeCAD 2010 Professional ENG\VBA\VBAOF11.MSI ??
You should not have to run any other installer from that directory. If the VBA re-installation fails, then you may try to reinstall the VBA components from your Office software and try again. Which version of Office are you running?
Unfortunately Microsoft Office is extremely complex with extra fingers in every part of the registry. Troubleshooting exactly what's wrong can take some time. But if Office VBA is misconfigured, it can make problems for progeCAD VBA as well, they share underlying dependencies.
One user fixed VBA installer problems by re-installing Microsoft VB6 runtime, but there is no guarantee:
