List installed COM Objects (_GetCOMObjectControls)

Recommended Posts

Here I have an older function of mine to find and list installed ActiveX controls, so you can use some of them to show in your Gui.

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aCOMObjects = _GetCOMObjectControls()
_ArrayDisplay($aCOMObjects, "All")

$aCOMObjects = _GetCOMObjectControls("Control")
_ArrayDisplay($aCOMObjects, "Control")

GUICreate("COM-Test", 620, 500)
Local $oFileSearch = ObjCreate("CompatUI.SelectFile.1")
Local $oPivot = ObjCreate("OWC11.PivotTable.11")

If IsObj($oFileSearch) Then GUICtrlCreateObj($oFileSearch, 10, 10, 600, 25)
If IsObj($oPivot) Then
    GUICtrlCreateObj($oPivot, 10, 100, 600, 383)

;~  $oPivot.ConnectionString =  "Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=True;" & _
;~                              "Extended Properties=\'DSN=MS Access Database;" & _
;~                              "DBQ=" & @ScriptDir & "test.mdb;\;" & _
;~                              "Initial Catalog=" & @ScriptDir & "\test"
;~  $oPivot.DisplayToolbar = True



Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

Func _GetCOMObjectControls($sFilter = "")
    Local $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\localhost\root\CIMV2")
    Local $colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_ClassicCOMClassSetting where Control = True AND ProgId Like '%" & $sFilter & "%'", "WQL", 48)
    If Not IsObj($colItems) Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
    Local $sRet
    For $objItem In $colItems
        $sRet &= $objItem.ProgId & @TAB
        $sRet &= $objItem.Caption & @CR
    Local $aTemp = StringSplit($sRet, @CR, 2)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1)
    Local $aRet[UBound($aTemp) - 1][2]
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aTemp) - 2
        $aRet[$i][0] = StringLeft($aTemp[$i], StringInStr($aTemp[$i], @TAB, 0, -1) - 1)
        $aRet[$i][1] = StringTrimLeft($aTemp[$i], StringInStr($aTemp[$i], @TAB, 0, -1))
    Return $aRet
EndFunc   ;==>_GetCOMObjectControls

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe
trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning.

Could be useful sometime, thanks for sharing. I added an array sort which makes the overview much easier.



Please don't send me any personal message and ask for support! I will not reply!
