Bizarre sudden problem with WIN32OLE - could not find specif


#1

Hi Folks,

I’ve been using win32ole alot for talking to Excel.

I’ve just come back to programming with win32ole after a lull of a
month to find that when I try creating an instance of excel I get this
error message :

“d:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-mswin32/win32OLE.so: 127: The specified
procedure coul
d not be found. - Init_win32OLE (LoadError)”

I’ve tried re-installing 1.8.2 (r15) without luck.

This is particularly strange since I don’t muck about with my ruby
install as I don;t want to break anything.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,

Greg

ok, I;ve found the solution!

The string in the “require” clause is case sensitive.
