When calling certain com objects, like Outlook.Application, or my own custom ones compiled in Visual basic, the webserver (Apache 1.3) will hang, and needs to be restarted.

The code used was:
<begin block>

$myItem = new COM("Outlook.Application")l
$myItem = $objApp->CreateItem(olMailItem);
$myItem->Body="This is a Body Section now.....!";

<end block>

outlook.exe did load (appeared on the process list).

but that is where it stopped.

1.) if apache is running under a different user (system, apache, whatever ...) outlook will run as that user and therefor might run the first time for that user prompting for user input (creating an email account and so on)
2.) doing UI things as a server is not a good thing(tm) because you don't see what's going on

if php also hangs when you execute your script from the command line then reopen this report.
