I have working with COM Object to create a php program like below:
$word = new com("word.application")  or die("Unable to instanciate Word");
print "Loaded Word, version {$word->Version}\n";
$word->Visible = 1;
In windows 98, it can execute and can show the word application, but the same setting in php.ini and so on, it cannot run in Windows XP. It only resident "WINWORD" in memory which i can see through press the Ctrl+Alt+Del, but it don't do anything even make the word application object visible. Why can be happen? Please send the solution to my email - if u site can solve this problem. Thanks... a lot

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments
to the existing bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

how many bugs must a man close down, before you can call him a man ?
4.3.0 and 4.3.1 are badly broken.
