I've read a couple of articles stating that IE doesn't register with the
ROT. It was geared toward IE4, but I am not sure if I am running into this
or if I am not doing something right. I question my syntax because I was
certain it worked once. Both CreateObject and GetActiveObject take 'progid'
which can be a clsid, or the string representation of the application's
clsid eg. InternetExplorer.Application..
here is what i am trying on xp sp2 ie6-7
from comtypes.client import GetActiveObject, CreateObject
ie = CreateObject('InternetExplorer.Application')
ie.Visible = True
(Seems good at this point)
newIe = GetActiveObject('InternetExplorer.Application')
'exception in blah blah'
Windows Error: ( Operation Unavailable )
The same results if I use the seemingly good ie.__clsid
I've also tried passing ie._iid_ and str(ie.__clsid) and str(ie._iid_)
Is this all the same problem with IE not registering with ROT?
