Hi there,

I would love to get this working with Illustrator CS3 and Vista. Right now I get a COM exception :
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040154): Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {57941AC1-D5AA-4FDC-9C39-B7AC411E031A} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

I've resolved the problem on my end. If you have Visual Studio 2005 (or I'd assume 2008/Orcas will work), create a new project (I used Console C#). Simply Add Reference, Select COM Tab, and locate the Adobe Illustrator C3 Type Library. Locate the Interop.Illustrator.dll assembly in your projects Debug/Release directory and overwrite the version in the XamlXporter directory.

HI There,

I have the same issue with Illustrator 3, but I'm a designer not a developer and not sure what all the VS2005 steps are above. Would it be possible you can forward the new Interop.Illustrator.dll file?

Thanks so much. I look forward to working with XamlXporter!
