Hi,

 

I'm getting a "System.Reflection.TargetException: 'RFLCT.Targ_ITargMismatch'" error when trying to run a simple scripting program from Visual Basic. See the attachment.

I wasn't getting this error when I ran similar scripts a few years back. What do I need to do?

 

Visual Studio 2019  Visual Basic

InDesign 2020

I just reinstalled InDesign from scratch, ran it once as an administrator, and the problem went away.

Not sure about VB errors, but can you check that the active document has been saved successfully and actually has a name? That's where I'd start.

Brian, thanks! I just found out that it was an InDesign installation problem.
