(solved see final post) IE object creation failing

Hey all.  So I have a script that is meant to use the IE UDF to launch a hidden IE browser to a specific site.  Of course the script does more than that, but I can't get it to actually launch an IE session, the console just returns this over and over when I try to run it:

> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IECreate,  (Browser Object Creation Failed)

Below is the code, however I am not sure how much it will help.  How do errors like this occur?  Any info would be appreciated.
 

#include <Zip.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
$oie = _IECreate ( "www.google.com", Default, 0 )
_IELoadWait ( $oie )

Don't know if this will help, but I am using the Windows 10 pro creators update x64 and restarting computer did not help

Have you tried other variations of _IECreate to determine if they also give this error? Post the output from Scite with each of the following changes --

$oie = _IECreate ( "www.google.com")
$oie = _IECreate ( "www.google.com", 1, 1)

So yeah, I tried different variations of the command, and I tried the versions you gave.  The first command gave the same error listed in the original post:

> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IECreate,  (Browser Object Creation Failed)

 

The last command gave two preceding errors then the same last error:

-> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Warning from function _IEAttach, Cannot register internal error handler, cannot trap COM errors (Use _IEErrorHandlerRegister() to register a user error handler)
--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Warning from function _IEAttach, $_IESTATUS_NoMatch
--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IECreate,  (Browser Object Creation Failed)

What is the output from this?

#include <IE.au3>

Global $oCOMErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", _User_ErrFunc)

Local $oIE = _IECreate ("www.google.com")

    ; Do anything here.

Hello sir.  Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  I decided to completely re-install os to see if that would work.  The odd thing is it did, for maybe half a day, then the same issue cropped up again!!  So, in response to your previous request, here is the output that I received when I ran the above code:

C:\Users\whiggs\Desktop\d.au3 (215) : ==> COM Error intercepted !
    err.number is:         0x80040154
    err.windescription:    Class not registered

    err.description is:     
    err.source is:         
    err.helpfile is:     
    err.helpcontext is:     
    err.lastdllerror is:     0
    err.scriptline is:     215
    err.retcode is:     0x00000000

 

Can someone explain how I can resolve this issue?  It would appear that the IE class is not registered, though I am not sure what that really means or how to resolve it.

Im inclined to believe that something has changed in IE in the creator's update version of windows which is causing this, especially considering that this is a brand new os install.

Well, this is interesting.  I decided to follow the instructions I found here (scroll to solution 2), and ran "regsvr32 ExplorerFrame.dll" in elevated command prompt, and an error window popped up with the following content:

The module "ExplorerFrame.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.

Make sure that "ExplorerFrame.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

What does this mean?  Anybody have an idea?

Edit: Trong, I would be more inclined to re-install the os if I hadn't spent all day yesterday backing up my files and reinstalling the os.  Since this OS is less than a day old, reinstalling the os is not going to happen again.

Turn on settings:

1. Enable unsigned ActiveX controls for the current zone 
Tools > Internet Options > Security > Custom level... 
Enable "ActiveX Controls and plug-ins" > "Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe for scripting" 

2.Allow Active Content to run files

P/S: What your OS version? OS Arch ? IE Version ?  Autoit version? ?

Still the same issue.  Operating system is Windows 10 Creators update edition that was released just 2 weeks ago (Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063]), so the version of Internet explorer that I am using is also the latest.  Autoit I am using is also the latest.  Is there anybody out there is is able to successfully create an IE object within autoit and manipulate successfully in the Windows 10 creators update?  I am starting to think this is more of a Windows problem than an Autoit problem, as trying to create a IE object in powershell results in the following error:

new-object : Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID 
{0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070005 Access is denied. 
(Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)).
At line:1 char:7
+ $ie = new-object -ComObject "InternetExplorer.Application"
+       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [New-Object], UnauthorizedAccessException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.NewObjectComm 
   and

 

Yet, when I check the registry key for that CLSID item, the administrators group (which I am a member of, has read access to the key......  I don't know what I am missing here.....

For those who are interested...I found the issue.  It was the application Sandboxie.  According to the changelog, starting in version 5.18, " Creation of IE embedded application objects are blocked by default."  So if you are running the latest official release of Sandboxie, you will be unable to script with IE, so I recommend updating to their latest beta release, which no longer blocks the creation of IE embedded application objects by default.
