Fatal Exeption on new COM("Word.Application")


Reproduce code:
---------------
Very well known example for testing "word.Application" COM object.
my line 13 is:

$word = new COM("Word.Application");
... the same as expected
$word->Documents->Add();



Expected result:
----------------
Creation of new test word file.

Actual result:
--------------

Please try using this CVS snapshot:

  http://snaps.php.net/php5.2-latest.tar.gz
 
For Windows:
 
  http://snaps.php.net/win32/php5.2-win32-latest.zip

By well known example I assume you mean something like the 
following: http://www.pastebin.ca/338618.

I have tried this example against the latest level of PHP 5.2 and it works fine. Can you please retry with the latest 5.2 snapshot and re-open the defect with details of your actual php script if the problem persists.

This error message happens when trying to instantiate MS WORD on a system with improper permissions.
You can refer to http://figured-it-out.com/figured-out.php?sid=24 to solve it.
