I'm embedding an RTF documnet into my document by copying RTF from the clipboard to a tempfile. I then create the OLE item from the temporary file. In a WinXP/Word2003 setup, I was then able to delete the temporary file. Now with Win7(x64)/Word 2007 I can't delete the temporary file because Word won't let go of it.

How can I force an object to disconnect from the OLE server and/or shut down the server directly?

Good OLE server — dead server. :-)

you must clean up your OLE object properly. Do all steps from startup in reverse.

I guess you opened an file, manipulated it and need to close is. Run the OLE code with i a visible window, so you see what you have done...
