  • PDF Creator COM Add-in blocks launching of Microsoft Office products

    Since updating to Foxit PhantomPDF 9.1, I've received multiple reports of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook) products failing to launch. They get stuck at a screen for "Loading Add-ins, Foxit PDF Creator COM Add-in". So far, there doesn't seem to be any easy way around the problem. I've asked people to close it, then try opening a specific file instead of just the main program by itself. That process worked until this morning. User says that nothing helps today.

    Yes, I can probably boot to safe mode and disable the add-in, but... why is that necessary for an add-in that should work.

    So, I'm curious if other users are experiencing the same issue in 9.1, or is it just something wrong with our local machine setups?

    Dear twalker.TNC, This issue you mentioned should have already been rectified in our latest released version 9.2 of Foxit PhantomPDF.
    Please help to install the latest version 9.2 to see if the Foxit PDF creator add-in will be compatible with MS office on your part?
    Following is link for downloading the latest version 9.2 of Foxit PhantomPDF:

      I am running 9.2.0.9297 and this is still happening. I had started a new new topic for this as unfortunately I never noticed this one.

          I have this exact issue. It is effecting Win 10 x64, Server 2012 R2, and Windows 7 x64 machines. It is effecting PhantomPDF Business version 9.1.0.5096, Foxit Reader 9.3.0.10826, and Foxit Reader 9.0.1.1049. Has there been any further progress on this issue? I have 280 clients who are intermittantly experiencing this issue?

              I have a similar problem with Foxit Reader and MS Word.

              OS: MS Windows 10 Pro x64 EN, 1809
              Word: MS Word 2013 (15.0.5101.1001) MSO (15.0.5111.1000) 64-bit, part of MS Office Pro Plus 2013
              FoxitReader: Version: 9.4.1.16828
              FoxitReader PDF Creator COM Add-in: I don't know how to grab version info!

              I have three issues:
              1- From TIME TO TIME while opening a Word document and thus Word itself from scratch, Word gives warnings for two add-ins related to Foxit:
              - wordaddin_rd.wordaddinrd (This add-in name is NOT a copy&paste, it's manually written, therefore there may be typo errors in its name)
              - foxitreader pdf creator com add-in (This add-in name is NOT a copy&paste, it's manually written, therefore there may be typo errors in its name)

              2- Upon opening, Word, ALL THE TIME, disables FoxitReader PDF Creator COM Add-in.

              3- After activating/enabling FoxitReader PDF Creator COM Add-in within Word, and after making a convert to PDF, Word crashes ALL THE TIME, though the PDF is created succesfuly but without triggerring/initiating FoxitReader.

              I have no evidence however this behaivor started to happen after either Word/Office's latest update or FoxitReader updates (program, add-ins, etc.), namely after around first week of March.

              I can not upload any attachments. So here are the log contents...

                  I'm sorry for the emoticon in the first log
                  The colon followed by letter "p" gives that emoticon...

                    cafyon ,I apologize for the trouble.For the first issue,do you mean that you received warning message when you opened MS word?
                    Please help to take a screenshot of the warning message for us.

                    For the second issue,do you mean that Foxit Reader PDF Creator com add-in was disabled automatically?

                    For the third issue,please help to send us the creator log file to support@foxitsoftware.com.[Attn: Lisa].
                    If it is possible,please help to use the LiceCap tool to generate an animated gif that shows how to reproduce the above three problems for our referencing.
                    Here's the download link:
                    http://sync-cn.foxitsoftware.com/iss/Tools/LICEcap.zip
                    (Unzip it, double-click on licecap file, you can then specify the recording area then hit "Record", it requires naming the file first then start recording.)

                    Look forward to your reply.

                      FYI, this is still an issue. I am running Foxit PDF Reader v9.4.1.16828. I am running Microsoft Word for Office 365 (16.0.11425.20202) 64-bit. When using the PDF creator add-in, word crashes and restarts. It then asks to disable the plugin. As stated before, the pdf file is created correctly. Also, the Foxit PDF printer is failing when attempting to print a document of 72 pages and 11143 words at 2.1MB in size. In this case, the PDF file is not correctly created and Word locks up and must be restarted.

                      This issue is now approximately 9 months old and not fixed. Have the developers had an opportunity to look at this at all?

                        Sorry for the trouble. Would you please try the below workaround to see if it helps?
                        http://sync-cn.foxitsoftware.com/iss...fpmvpr_drv.rar

                        Please download the fpmvpr_drv.zip from the above link, then unzip to get the x86 and x64 folder, then replace the dll file that located in "C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\x64\3" with the one in x64 folder; replace the dll file located in "C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\W32X86\3" with the one in x86 folder.

                        Please let us know if the new dll file helps.

                          In Excel, go to File, Options, Add-ins. Look into the Inactive Application Add-ins, check if Foxit PDF Creator COM Add-in is listed there. Click on the triangle in the Manage box, select COM Add-ins, choose Go. Tick the check box before Foxit PDF Creator COM Add-in, click on OK to apply the change vidmate.

                            Good morning,
                            As directed above, I replaced the original dll file with the attached dll file, however this did not solve the problem. Below is the report from Windows Event Viewer.

                            Word is running into problems with the 'foxitreader pdf creator com add-in' add-in. If this keeps happening, disable this add-in and check for available updates. Do you want to disable it now?
