What is COM error 2?

The title says it all. I've attempted to look it up but with no luck.

"What is COM error 2?"

(I can't provide a reproducer because I can't figure out what causes it)

Depends on the COM interface that sent it. What was it doing, where's the code...?

I don't know.

My error reporter system sends me messages that say:

Description:

Error Number: 2

Error Source:

Error HelpFile:

Error HelpContext:

That's all I have to work with.

Ohhhh Kaayyyy.... we can play 20 questions...

Q2. Do you know which AutoIt script was running at the time?

No as my report code is inside a UDF that is sent out with all my software. I'll get you the most commonly used commands.

$object.navigate()
$object.locationurl
$object.readystate
$object.document.body.innerHTML
$object.document.forms.item

You should be able to find automation error codes and text in Winerror.h or here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/186063

Don't think you're gonna find "2" however. Better look at your error reporting routine.

It's more or less exactly the same information that yours provides, just shorter.

I still only get a "2".

Those all look like properties of an IE object, either from _IECreate() or your own call to ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application"). But, just because they are most commonly used doesn't mean they are the ones throwing the error.

Dale's answer implies the error codes in winerror.h are the only ones you should get from IE (and 00000002 isn't one of them), but I would assume a particular app or COM interface can also have its own error code not listed there. So:

Q3. Are there objects obtained by either ObjGet() or ObjCreate() in your scripts, other than from IE?

Edit: Nevermind, I have isolated and fixed the error. Thank you all for your help.
