Getting a COMException when calling MyApplicationClass.Quit()

I have a visio document from which I wish to modify all shapes and export
pages to HTML. Here is a rough view of the code:

ApplicationClass visioApplication = new ApplicationClass();
short flags = (short)VisOpenSaveArgs.visOpenHidden +
(short)VisOpenSaveArgs.visOpenRW;
Document activeDocument = null;

try
{
Document visioDocument =
visioApplication.Documents.OpenEx(visioFilePath, flags);
activeDocument = visioApplication.ActiveDocument;
int numberOfPages = activeDocument.Pages.Count;
if (numberOfPages > 0)
{
for (int i = 1; i <= numberOfPages; i++)
{
Page page = activeDocument.Pages;
int numberOfShapes = page.Shapes.Count;
for (int j = 1; j <= numberOfShapes; j++)
{
foreach (Hyperlink hyperLink in shape.Hyperlinks)
{
hyperLink.Delete();
}
shape.AddHyperlink();
shape.Hyperlink.Address = myHyperLinkAddress;
string savedFillStyle = shape.FillStyle;
shape.FillStyle = highlightedFillColor;
page.Export(destinationfilePath);
shape.FillStyle = savedFillStyle;
}
page.Export(filePath);
}
}
else
{
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("The document '{0}' did not contain
any pages", activeDocument.Name));
}
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString());
}
finally
{
short savedAlertResponse = visioApplication.AlertResponse;
visioApplication.AlertResponse = 7;
activeDocument.Close();
visioApplication.AlertResponse = savedAlertResponse;
visioApplication.Quit();
}

Note that a few parameters are not declared but they are irrelevant in this
case. If I omit the HyperLink and FillStyle modification, my console
application runs fine, but if I include the modification I receive the
following error when I call Quit():

COMException: {"The remote procedure call failed. (Exception from HRESULT:
0x800706BE)"}
ErrorCode: -2147023170
TargetSite: {Void Quit()}

I'm using "Visio 2007 12.0.6504.5000 SP2 MSO (12.0.6425.1000)" and I have
not been able to track down the cause of the error. Does anyone have a clue
as to what the cause might be?

Hi,
I also have the same problem. My application runs on Windows 2008 SP2 32Bit.
On what platform does your application run on ?
I noticed that when I run my application on Windows 2003 R2 SP2 32Bit the
application runs OK with no error.
With regards,
Yossi

Hi Yossi,

Sorry for the long wait but I've been working around the problem until I
found this post again. This application runs on Windows Server 2008 SP2 64bit
with Visio 2007 installed.

As I mentioned before I never found a solution to the problem - sorry.
