_IECreate *anything Variable must be of type "Object".:

3 posts in this topic

Hello.

I'm at my wits end. I had a perfectly running script, ran it, stopped it. When I ran it again, bang, error. The one in the title.

Now, whatever I try, even samples from the docs, 

variable must be of type "Object".:

I copy - paste the code from the docs exactly as provided. I included ie.au3. I even redownloaded ie.au3 from the library section.

I closed scite, i restarted everything.

I can't get anything related to _Ie to function.

This is ... baffling.

Open your task manager and look for any stray copies of iexplore.exe. Kill those and then try again.

Thank you friend. Already did. Nothing popped. I restarted the Pc and I got it working again. (the syntax checker was popping errors too - and the scripts were copy-pasted 10000000% identical to the docs).

So, for further googlers... try Danp2's solution first, mine second.

(restarting my pc made me cry inside - i felt like a granny using a mobile phone :(  )
