Testing this code in 4.3.0-pre1:


$adodb = new COM("ADODB.Connection") or die("Cannot start ADO");


under ISAPI results in this error page for me:

Warning: (null)(): Invoke() failed: Exception occurred. Source: ADODB.Connection Description: Operation is not allowed when the object is closed. in c:\work\test.php on line 4

Warning: String is not zero-terminated (ZZZZZZZZ?̏*ZZZZ ) (source: c:\php-4.3.0pre1\ext\com\com.c:2112) in c:\work\test.php on line 4

this is an adodb issue, the exception is not thrown by php.

I don't believe this is an ADODB problem.  The same error happens if I do this:


$xml = new COM("MSXML.DOMDocument") or die("failed to create");

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can

In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up soon at

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the site and on the mirror sites in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.
