OLE Automation calls to other applications.

Hi,

I have a thin client software which I thinapp-ed earlier. It works pretty well except when loading and opening documents within the application, it starts to throw an error: "The Ole object failed to draw itself". I've asked the vendor in regards to this, he mentioned that particular error suggested that the system was unable to initiate the appropriate application via OLE Automation for the type of document being viewed/uploaded. e.g: if it was a Word document, it will be trying to launch Microsoft Word, or whatever application is set as the default for .doc files on the workstation.

So my question is, are there any configurations that can done when building a Thinapp application to allow OLE Automation calls to other applications?

Thanks heaps for your help in advance

Cheers,

Lilys
