Submitted: 2001-01-26 08:37 UTC Modified: 2001-03-02 23:12 UTC
From: sjrijk at yahoo dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: COM related
PHP Version: 4.0.3pl1 OS: Win 2000
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

The example (see below) from the PHP site to do some stuff with MS Word seems incompatible with IIS 5.0.

$word=com_load("Word.application") or die("Cannot start word for you"); 
print "Loaded word version ($word->Version)\n"; 
$word->visible =1 ; 
$word->Selection->Typetext("Dit is een test"); 
$word->Documents[1]->SaveAs("burb ofzo.doc"); 

The same code has also been executed on (another) system runnig Win ME / Apache and does exactly what it's supposed to do.

Does this problem involves some kind of priviliges, not already documented?

Can you elaborate some more? What exactly doesn't work then, does it crash, does it give you an error?

$word = new COM("Word.application");

or use the

com_propget, com_propput, com_invoke functions after the print command.

I've removed IIS 5.0 and replaced it with Apache 1.3.17; It now works like clockwork and w/o any alterations.

Seems my first hunch was right: The COM functions are not entirely compatible with IIS.

Maybe something to look into?

works fine with iis and the latest cvs version.
