Convert Word files to PostScript files by using Word library and Distiller library

I use Word library 11.0 (Word 2003), Distiller library 1.0 (Acrobat Professioanl 6.0), Windows Server 2003 and Visual Studio .NET 2003 Academic Edition to develop a web application which is used to convert  Word files to PostScript files. The codes (C# and VB.NET) can work very well in Console Application. But they don't work in Web Application or Web Service. Please tell me how to solve the problem. Thanks! Theare are C# source code and VB.NET source code:

if(strCommandName == "PDF")
ac.ActivePrinter="Adobe PDF";
ac.ActivePrinter="Microsoft Office Document Image Writer";
object objOpenFileName=Server.MapPath("")+@"\TempFold\Word.doc";
object objReadOnly=true;
object objIsVisible=false;
object objMissing=Type.Missing;
Word.Document doc = ac.Documents.Open(ref objOpenFileName, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing,
ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objIsVisible,
ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing);

object objBackground = true;
object objAppend = false;
object objOutputFileName;
if(strCommandName == "PDF")
objOutputFileName = Server.MapPath("")+@"\TempFold\";
objOutputFileName = Server.MapPath("")+@"\TempFold\Word.prn";
object objPrintToFile = true;
doc.PrintOut(ref objBackground, ref objAppend, ref objMissing, ref objOutputFileName, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing,
ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objPrintToFile, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing,
ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing, ref objMissing);
catch(Exception ex)
object objIsSaveChanges = Word.WdSaveOptions.wdSaveChanges;
doc.Close(ref objIsSaveChanges, ref objMissing, ref objMissing);
ac.Quit(ref objIsSaveChanges, ref objMissing, ref objMissing);

Sub ConvertWord2PS()
Dim ac As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass
ac = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass
ac.Visible = False
Dim strPreviousPrinter As String = ac.ActivePrinter
ac.ActivePrinter = "Adobe PDF"
ac.ScreenUpdating = False
ac.DisplayAlerts = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdAlertLevel.wdAlertsNone
Dim objOpenFileName As Object
Dim objReadOnly As Object
Dim objIsVisible As Object
Dim doc As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Document
objOpenFileName = "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\vbWord2PDFWebApp\bin\Word.doc"
objReadOnly = True
objIsVisible = False
doc = ac.Documents.Open(objOpenFileName)
Dim objBackground As Object
Dim objAppend As Object
Dim objOutputFileName As Object
Dim objPrintToFile As Object
objBackground = True
objAppend = False
objOutputFileName = "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\vbWord2PDFWebApp\bin\"
objPrintToFile = True
doc.PrintOut(objBackground, objAppend, , objOutputFileName, , , , , , , objPrintToFile)
Catch ex As Exception
End Try
End Sub

You haven't specified what's not working.

At a guess though, I'd suggest that the ASPNET worker account does not have sufficient privileges to execute against the COM+ objects. You may need to employ Impersonation or something else. (Security is not my thing, so I cannot provide guidance.)
You should perhaps have a look through the archives of the following two forums:
Enterprise Services
You will find valuable information about working with COM+ objects in both of those forums.

Looking for: A component to Convert Word files to RTF files
Hello Everyone, I have the need to be able to print Word content (ie files stored in a database blob) in a Report Builder report. One way I thought to do this is to first convert it to RTF - and then RB can deal with that. Does anyone know of code or a component that will convert Word files to RTF files? I know I could OLE - but I am hoping to be able to do this without having Word installed on a machine. I know of - but unless I misunderstand - it only converts the word documents to TEXT. (which is a valid fall back) Any thoughts or suggestio...
