Method 'SetDevInfo' cannot be invoked at this time.

Post by nkm » Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:19 pm

After running an application that uses pxcview.dll instead of AxInterop.PDFXCViewAxLib.Dll/ Interop.PDFXCviewAxLib.dll, the activeX program fails to run error: Method 'SetDevInfo' cannot be invoked at this time. pxcview.dll program has been stopped and will run when restarted.

Is there a way to fix this error so that the activeX program will run again?

Hello nkm,

Could you please give us a bit more detailed description of your problem?
Which programs exactly you are trying to run?

C# dll methods. Sample use found in PDF-XChange V4 example applications.

1) FullDemo: Form1.cs
axCoPDFXCview1.SetDevInfo(bsKey, bsCode);
(AxInterop.AxPDFXCviewAxLib.dll)

2) PXCView36: PXCV_Lib.cs
[DllImport("pxcview")]
public static extern int PXCV_Init(out IntPtr hDoc, string Key, string DevCode);

Error occurred after program1 closed, program 2 run then closed, program 1 open. ie:
1: success
2: success
1: failure
2: success (currently using conversion without activex viewer component)

Hi,

I was unable to reproduce such problem with PDFViewerActiveXTestCS.exe and PXCView36_sample_csharp.exe. Try to fully reinstall PDF-XChange Viewer (uninstall first and then install latest version).

HTH.

Thank you for looking into the issue Corwin.
The error occurred on a server that is "very buggy". I have been unable to reproduce the error with our in-house servers but was hoping your team had dealt with this issue in the past. It is probably an issue that is specific to the security settings on that machine.
I will reinstall PDF Viewer/ have the site reboot the server after operations are shut down for the weekend.
