A call to create a COM object can pass the codepage as the third parameter and CP_UTF8 is a valid option.  If you use this, however, the object create fails.

The problem is in the php_char_to_OLECHAR and php_OLECHAR_to_char functions in com\conversion.c.  MSDN states that a call to WideCharToMultiByte with a codepage of CP_UTF8 must have a second parameter is 0, but these functions don't account for that.

How I fixed it (there may be a better way, but it works for me):

lines 764 and 760: change "MB_PRECOMPOSED | MB_ERR_INVALID_CHARS" to "codepage == CP_UTF8 ? 0 : MB_PRECOMPOSED | MB_ERR_INVALID_CHARS"

lines 784 and 790: change "WC_COMPOSITECHECK" to "codepage == CP_UTF8 ? 0 : WC_COMPOSITECHECK"

This fix is not well debugged, but it got me moving forward again.

the patch that was made for 4.2.1RC is incomplete - the call to WideCharToMultiByte must have 0 as the second parameter is the codepage is CP_UTF8, but this patch sets it to MB_ERR_INVALID_CHARS instead (submitted to
