Win32OLE RuntimeError due CoInitialize not being called

Added by luislavena (Luis Lavena) over 12 years ago. Updated over 9 years ago.

Status:
Closed
Priority:
Normal
Target version:
-
ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.1p376 (2009-12-07 revision 26041) [i386-mingw32]
Backport:

Description

=begin
A user reported to Ruby-Talk and RubyInstaller mailing list some issues using ruby 1.9.1p243 (2009-07-16 revision 24175) [i386-mingw32]

http://groups.google.com/group/rubyinstaller/browse_thread/thread/e5e47aabf09aff98

I could reproduce the issue across multiple versions of 1.9.1 and with close-up-to-date version of 1.9.2dev:

http://groups.google.com/group/rubyinstaller/msg/dae727305e57ba6d

Simple test script:
http://pastie.org/786354


 require 'win32ole'
 
 t = Thread.new do
   begin
     ie = WIN32OLE.new( "InternetExplorer.Application" )
     ie.visible = true
     ie.navigate( "http://google.com" )
     puts "OK"
   rescue Exception => e
     puts e.class
     puts e
     puts e.backtrace
   end
 end
 
 t.join
 

Generates this:

Both mswin32 and mingw32 generates the same issue.

Could you try ruby 1.9.2dev (2010-01-23 trunk 26383)?
I'm not sure fix this issue or not, but the script
works fine in my Windows XP.
I have tested cygwin ruby and mswin32 ruby.
