Hello,

I was trying the script. Works fine with Excel 2007 on Window7 (64bit) as well as with Excel 2010 (32bit) on Windows 7 (32bit). But I encountered problems with the same script on Windows XP SP3 Home Edition and Excel 2003 Office Professional.

Each time the script tries to exceute the following code line an error occurs and the EarlyExit is performed which resumes with the cleanup section. Same code is found in there again and thus I end up in an endless loop.

Code:
Shell "taskkill /f /im PDFCreator.exe", vbHide

Thanks for your help.

Hi Saceur,

If I recall correctly, the issue is around the Home version of the OS. I'm fairly sure that they don't support using the shell command provided.

If you need to use the same routine on multiple PCs, some pro and some home, you could try throwing an "On Error Resume Next" line in front of the shell command. It won't kill the PDFCreator instance, but your code will complete...
