    Why is this not working??? PLEASE HELP ANYONE!!!!

    Hello All, thanks for reading this and for any help you may provide. I am having a problem, I used the "Building Office 2K Addins" article as a guide and I am trying to automate MS Word but I keep getting a compiler error. The error is:

    StdAfx.obj : fatal error LNK1179: invalid or corrupt file: duplicate comdat "_IID_CanvasShapes"

    I cannot figure out why I keep getting this link error. I am not sure what is causing this. Does any have any idea that may work, it works in the article but not for me. I have included a lot of the code, if anyone needs to see more, just let me know. I am in desperate need and am clueless!!!!

    Why would I be getting error. I cannot get around it! PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Instead of importing Outlook, I am trying to import Word in the stdafx.h:

    #import "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Office10\mso.dll" rename_namespace("Office") named_guids
    using namespace Office;

    #import "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\MSWORD.olb" rename("ExitWindows", "WordExitWindows"), named_guids, raw_interfaces_only
    using namespace Word;

    #include "stdafx.h"

    #ifdef _ATL_STATIC_REGISTRY

    Firstly, there is an error in your code, a tip: it is to do with something that you did which uses the StdAfx library. Secondly, Im not going to read through all that code to find it. Just look in your functions, somewhere you will find the error, maybe AfxMessageBox or something like that, just do a search for anything starting with Afx.

    Hope this helps
    tudehopet uses Borland Compiler 5.5
    and Visual C++ 6.

    Truthfully, it doesn't help at all. I am not using Afx__________ anything, not AfxMessageBox, etc. in the entire project. So really, this is not the problem. Any other ideas???
