Error when trying to create a remote COM object

Recommended Posts

Keithw

I'm trying to create a remote object using the example script on the ObjCreate function reference page:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

;Open the MediaPlayer ona REMOTE computer

Local $oRemoteMedia = ObjCreate("WMPlayer.OCX", "W2RATD5NGK32", "W2RATD5NGK32\administrator", "Win7Pilot")

If Not @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Remote ObjCreate Test", "ObjCreate() of a remote Mediaplayer Object successful !")
    $oRemoteMedia.openPlayer(@WindowsDir & "\media\tada.wav")  ; Play sound if file is present
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Remote ObjCreate Test", "Failed to open remote Object.  Error code: " & Hex(@error, 8))
EndIf

The message returns:  Failed to open remote Object.  Error Code:  80004002 

 

I've tried researching this error but haven't found any useful info.  All I know are these requirements below and I know for sure that the services are running, and the script is being executed as x64 with admin rights.

 

  • The user running the script must have the appropriate permissions.
  • The Object on the remote computer must support DCOM (Distributed COM)
  • The remote computer must have 'Remote Registry Service' and 'File and Printer sharing' services running.

I'm now at a dead end and not sure how to further troubleshoot this error.  Also, the script runs fine when I use my own hostname.  Any ideas?

      I was Playing around With AutoIt this evening and wondered how hard it would be to get typeinfo like the COM Viewers do only using AutoIt
      Turns out it was pretty easy.
      A Few Notes:
      CAarray info is unfinished I didn't have any objects to test it on so I left it Limited.
      The Object must have IDispatch exposed (ITypeInfo is derivative)
      Its Just a proof of concept Run with it but don't carry scissors
      ITypeInfoCOM.au3
      ITypeInfoTest.au3
       
      Output IWebBrowserApp
       
      Output ObjCreate(MediaPlayer.MediaPlayer.1)

       Hello all"
      I have curious problem with com object implementation of Sapi 5.1.
      In some cases }Some Voice engines] the metods for retrieve the voice parameters fails with error :Member not exists:.
      But the Retrieved Voice object can speak the given text, so It exists and work.
      Example of this type of Engine can be this one: http://download.kobavision.be/KobaSpeech3/KobaSpeech 3 With Vocalizer Serena - English (Great Britain).exe (can work as demo)
      So my question is> Is there some way to workaround or solve this issue?
      What i tryed:
      1. Typical use of Sapi.spvoice object:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
       
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $voice in $spvoice.getvoices()
        msgbox(0, "Voice", $voice.getdescription())
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc

      2. Implement workaround based on Nvda Screen reader sapi5 Library at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/blob/master/source/synthDrivers/sapi5.py
      Thys code in Pascal should work, so i tryed to reproduce it in Autoit.
      Pascal code just as example:
                   SOTokens:=SpVoice.GetVoices('','');
                   for i:=0 to SOTokens.Count-1 do
                   try
                        SOToken:=SOTokens.Item(I); s:=SOToken.GetDescription(0);
      end
      In Autoit I tryed it like this:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $i = 0 to $spvoice.getvoices.count-1
      $name = $spvoice.getvoices.item($i).getdescription
      msgbox(0,"Voice", $name)
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc
      Both of this methods returning same Error ("Member not exists.").
      Thanks a lot for help.

      Hello,
       
      Is there a way to get all the properties and method of a COM object thru Autoit.
      I am looking in a way of display the imbricated structure of object and method.
       
      Example of COm objects are "itunes.application", "Shell.application" and so on.
      The idea is to have a code looking like
      $objtobrowse = objcreate("itunes.application") if isobj($objtobrowse) then $colItems = $objtobrowse.buildinproperty For $objItem In $colItems ConsoleWrite($objItem.<Name> & " - " & $objItem.<Value> & @CRLF) Next EndIf
