Starting without any Powerpoint or Word tasks running: after I do: p1 = WIN32OLE.new "Powerpoint.Application" p2 = WIN32OLE.new "Powerpoint.Application" w1 = WIN32OLE.new "Word.Application" w2 = WIN32OLE.new "Word.Application" In Windows Task Manager I now see: 1 Powerpoint task 2 Word tasks Why the difference? Also, what is the best way to script non-COM applications on windows e.g. by scripting their UI events? Thanks!

Word allows multiple instances. Simple as that. > Also, what is the best way to script non-COM applications on windows e.g. by > scripting their UI events? AutoIt (http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/) is pretty good for that kind of thing (and it's free :) Regards, Sean

Hi! To see, in word (options), "fenêtres dans la barre des tâches" (in french) ; in english, it is, perhaps, "windows in taskbar" @-salutations Michel Claveau
