WM Com Objects

Recommended Posts


So, I am trying to understand how to use the com objects. I want to create a WM window and play a video.

All I can get to work is the version info:

$FileName = "d:\temp\au\test1.avi"
$myWMP = ObjCreate("WMPlayer.ocx")
MsgBox(0,"QC",$val)oÝ÷ Ølyé¬)"ÈhºW[y¦åzÚ¢Øb³­Øb±«­¢+ØÀÌØí¥±9µôÅÕ½ÐíèÀäÈíѵÀÀäÈíÔÀäÈíÑÍй¥¸ÅÕ½Ðì(ÀÌØíµå]5@ô=©
ÉÑ ÅÕ½Ðí]5A±åȹ½àÅÕ½Ðì¤(ÀÌØíµå]5@¹
½¹Ñɽ±Ì¹Á±ä ÀÌØí¥±9µ¤

But it throws an error:

(3) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

Why is this?

It is nearly impossible to "guess" what the object model for an automation interface will look like.

You are on the right track, but I would suggest you Google "+WMPlayer.ocx +CreateObject" and you'll get a trail to follow.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
