I'm COMfused

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know why this works:

$obj = ObjCreate("Microsoft.Update.Session")

and this doesn't:

$obj = ObjCreate("System.Net.WebProxy")

I unfortunately don't understand COM objects very well, but shouldn't the syntax be similar? I've looked this up on VBScript sites, and the syntax is the same for them. Are "System" objects just not supported with AutoIt? Thanks.

Do a registry search for the two strings involved. You will notice the difference.

Ok, so that makes more sense, I found the first, but not the second. Now how do I find/get or otherwise acquire the program with that progID?

The latter doesn't expose an interface that au3 can access. Refer to the COM/OBJ help for the interfaces that au3 can talk to. Sven or one of the COM gurus might be able to explain more than the limitations that are outlined in the OBJ/COM helpfile / intro material which directly relates to your questions.

Note: Fixed typo
