I am using COM since 5.0.5 without problems. Since 5.1RC6 and now 5.1.0 COM does stop the complete script. I get no output anymore. 

see code ...

Reproduce code:

echo "Start Test " . date("F j, Y, g:i:s a") . "<br>";

try {
	$dom = new COM ( "MSXML2.DOMDocument.4.0" );
	$dom->Async = false;
	$dom->validateOnParse = false;
	$dom->resolveExternals = true;
	$dom->preserveWhiteSpace = false;
} catch (Exception $e) {
	die("Error during DOM create.<br>");

$xml = "<wood>

echo "loading...<br>";

try {
} catch (Exception $e) {
	echo "ERROR: can't parse Parameter-XML<br>";
	echo "ERROR: Reason " . $dom->ParseError->Reason . "<br>";
	echo "ERROR: Absolute File Position " . $dom->ParseError->Filepos . "<br>";
	echo "ERROR: Line number " . $dom->ParseError->Line . "<br>";
	echo "ERROR: Character Position " . $dom->ParseError->linepos . "<br>";
	echo "ERROR: SRC Line: " . HTMLEncode ($dom->ParseError->srcText) . "<br>";

echo htmlentities($dom->xml);

echo "<br>finish<br>";

Expected Output :
Start Test November 25, 2005, 12:26:26 pm
<wood> <tree><num>1</num></tree> <tree><num>2</num></tree> <tree><num>3</num></tree> <tree><num>4</num></tree> </wood> 

Expected result:
Start Test November 25, 2005, 12:26:26 pm
<wood> <tree><num>1</num></tree> <tree><num>2</num></tree> <tree><num>3</num></tree> <tree><num>4</num></tree> </wood> 

Actual result:

SysInformation: I am using IIS with ISAPI Extension.
Windows is running with latest servicepack and patches.

Btw, check the event viewer or whatever it's called to see if there are any error log entries.

I have no errors in the ErrorLog nor in the eventlog.

I have tried to get COM via PHP 5.1.0 to work on IIS, Apache and Sambar. Trying to use even (try, catch) no matter what simple object is called will result in...

PHP has encountered an Access Violation at 0140AC0D

This works in...

PHP 5.0.*, and snaps 5.1.x-dev before Nov 19, 2005 snaps.

	$url = '';

	$obj = new COM ( 'InternetExplorer.Application' );

	if ( is_object ( $obj ) )
		$ifn = parse_url ( $url );
		$obj->Visible = false;
		$obj->FullScreen = true;
		$obj->Width = 800;
		$obj->Navigate ( $url );
		while ( $obj->ReadyState != '4' ) usleep ( 10000 );
		echo $obj->Document->body->scrollHeight;
		$obj->Quit ();
		$obj = null;

The result should print the (document body scroll height in pixels)

At least in PHP 5.0.4, COM was working ok, sure there were still problems with variants and references to variants, but at least COM was working, now nothing. I tried the latest ( - Nov 26, 2005 11:30 GMT and it still does not work, same problem)

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. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Dupe of bug #35316
and fixed in CVS
