Embedding File Hangs Office
I ran into the problem when embedding files into a Word document. I was using Office 2007, but this may be a problem in other versions. Word says that it is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action . What I had to do is open the task manager and end acroread.exe or whatever pdf program was running. After that I could embed the file successfully. I'll upload screen-shots if I ever run into it again.
