Upgrading Creator component

Post by TDWiseley » Tue Nov 10 2009

Trying to upgrade the Creator component in a project from 3 to 4. VS2005/.NET 2.0/C#

1. Disabled (commented out) all instances of creator creation, removed Creator object from two forms.
2. Deleted ACPDFCREACTIVEX and AxACPDFCREACTIVEX from References
3. Added the new v4 control, creating new instances of the ACPDFCREACTIVEX and AxACPDFCREACTIVEX objects
4. Created a dummy form, and tried to create a Creator object in it.
5. Received the error message "Failed to import ActiveX control".

When I created a new project, and went through steps 3 and 4, everything worked fine. What steps are required for upgrading an existing project?
