 i am trying to warite a php script for administration of microsoft
virtual server when i use a COM "VirtualServer.Application" the object
is created but when i tried to access "VirtualMachines" etc,the COM
function will troughs error.

Reproduce code:
vb script:- 

'Script Begins 

On Error Resume Next 

'Connect to Virtual Server 
Set virtualServer = CreateObject("VirtualServer.Application") 

'Get collection of virtual machines 
set vmCollection = virtualServer.VirtualMachines 

'Iterate over the virtual machines and display data 
For Each vm in vmCollection 
Wscript.Echo "==============================" 
Wscript.Echo "Name: " & vm.Name 
Wscript.Echo "Notes: " & vm.Notes 

Wscript.Echo "==============================" 


'Script Ends 

Works Fine 

PHP Script 

function f1() 
//Connect to Virtual Server 
$virtualServer = new COM("VirtualServer.Application"); 

//Get collection of virtual machines 
$vmCollection = $virtualServer->VirtualMachines; 
//Iterate over the virtual machines and display data 
foreach( $vmCollection as $vm) 
print( "\nName: " $vm->Name); 

Expected result:

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.
