in reply to Win32::OLE-GetActiveObject

Your code is right. The problem is with IE versions <5.003. Those versions doesn't register its self when active, so getactiveobject will fail. The reason it works on your 2k box is, a version of IE >5.00.3 is alread loaded.

    Interesting...I have an NT machine that's running IE 5.5 and the GetActiveObject still appears to fail. Yuk.

      I have 4 computers all using a similar version of Windows 98, Internet Explorer and Perl, 3 of which are unable to get an internet explorer active object. I have tried to identify what possible difference in configuration there is between the successful one and the other 3 but have so far been unable to. Any suggestions?
