Hi, I have problems fetching data from an special database over a com-based sdk. With VisualBasic it's not a problem, but the same code doesn't work with php. Some folks (lists/forums) said it may be an bug in the COM-Extension of PHP.
The error occurs with a COM based SDK (called PI-SDK from OsiSoft Inc.). I can work via COM with all functions that need no parameters. But most of the functions that need params didn't work with php. With VisualBasic it works without problems. I testet with PHP 5.2.2/3/4/5 (snaps and, 5.3.0-dev(snap from today).

Reproduce code:
Because of comercial licence ist not reproducible for the comunity :-/
//Following works fine:
$comObjPi = new COM('PISDK.PISDK');
$server = $comObjPi->Servers->Item("");
$point = $server->PIPoints("SINUSOID");
echo "\n Last value: ".$point->Data->SnapShot()->Value."\n";
echo "\n Last Timestamp: ".$point->Data->SnapShot()->TimeStamp."\n";
//the following throws exceptions:
  $value = $point->Data->ArcValue(new Variant(mktime(), VT_R8), rtBefore);
  echo "\n Value before now (last value): ".$point->Data->SnapShot()->Value."\n";
} catch(Exception $e){
  print("\nException ".$e->getMessage()." TraceString:".$e->getTraceAsString());

Expected result:
Last value: 47.11
Last Timestamp: 123456789
Value before now (last value): 47.11

Actual result:
Last value: 47.11
Last Timestamp: 123456789
Exception Parameter 0: Typkonflikt.  //Type-Mismatch in the english
 TraceString: #0 C:\php_pi\pitest.php(10): variant->ArcValue(Object(variant), 6)
#1 {main}
