Frustration has officially set in. This is my first post here, and to be very honest, I'll admit that I'm a newbie VB programmer as well. I guess that's why I'm posting here, in hopes you super-porgrammer types might be able to help.

I've written a smallish VB program with 2010 express... the code uses some text files to gather various lists of numbers ( as part of a manufacturing Bill of Material ) that assiciate to PDF files of the same name. The intent was simply to view and print the gathered existing PDF files.
I have the program mostly working the way I want ( at home ), but when I bring it to work, it fails to open.
My home PC is a 32Bit Windows Vista Machine with Adobe 10.1 viewer installed.My Work PC is a 64 Bit Windows 7 Machine also with Adobe 10.1. I've sent the .sln and code to a buddy who is also running a 64bit Win 7 machine very similar to what I have... he is able to run the program. I've sent the same thing to my work pc and tried to run it. I get some crazy HRESULT error I can't make heads or tails out of... remember I'm a newbie.
I will happily post code if you guys are interested, but I believe that it isn't code related. What kind of things MIGHT i try to look for on my work pc that would cause this simple program Not to function? I've brought other programs I've written to work without problem. But this one has me stumped.
Other things I've tried:
1) uninstall and re-install Adobe... ( no change )
2) written a super small adobe viewer program at work... ( works )
3) tried to comple as "any CPU", "x86", and "x64"... ( does not work )
4) bring .sln & code files to compile and run at work... ( does not work, HRESULT err )
