GeneralMSWord Applications Pin

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know why I can't seem to run multiple MSWord applications simultaneously? I am running a multithreaded server that opens a Word application per thread. The server then open documents and prints them. It works fine if I put a sleep statement in the code, which suggests that there is a synchronization issue. Here is psuedo code to help explain:

#include <atlbase.h>
#import "C:\WINNT\ServicePackFiles\i386\mqoa.dll" no_namespace
#import "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\mso9.dll" raw_interfaces_only
#import "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\msword9.olb" raw_interfaces_only rename("ExitWindows","WordExitWindows")

class MSWord()
{
public:
MSWord ()
{
m_hResults = CLSIDFromProgID(“Word.Application”, &clsid);
if (FAILED(m_hResults))
{
throw “Error”;
}
m_hResults = m_pWord.CreateInstance(clsid, NULL);
m_hResults = m_pWord->get_Documents(&m_pDocs);
}

void printDoc(string strDoc)
{
CComBSTR comBstr = strFile.c_str();
CComVariant var(comBstr);

VARIANT vOpt;
vOpt.vt = VT_ERROR;
vOpt.scode = DISP_E_PARAMNOTFOUND;

m_hResults = m_pDocs->Open(&var, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &pDoc);
if (FAILED(m_hResults))
return;

m_hResults = pDoc->PrintOut(&vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &vOpt, &var, &vOpt);

if (FAILED(m_hResults))
{
cout << " Failed to print " << endl;
return;
}

Sleep(20);

pDoc->Close(COleVariant((short)false), &vOpt, &vOpt);
::SysFreeString(comBstr);
}

private:
Word::_ApplicationPtr m_pWord;
Word::DocumentsPtr m_pDocs;
Word::_DocumentPtr pDoc;
CLSID clsid;
};


static void Foo()
{
MSWord msWord;
MsWord.PrintDoc(“Hello.doc”);
}

void main(void)
{
HANDLE hThreads[10];

for (int I = 0; I < 10; ++I)
hThreads[I] = CreateThread(Foo);

WaitForMultipleObjects(hThreads, INFINITE);
}

Is there a way to create only one Word application and pass it to all of the threads? Confused | :confused: I’m using MSVisual C++ 6.6 compiler.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Big Grin | :-D
