    COM Interface General Error

    I'm having trouble on a single computer getting the WLM COM interface to
    work, I've used it on this computer before, but since a re-install of Windows
    XP, it's not functioning at all. Are there any dependancies that I should be
    aware of. The software I am using which utilises the COM interface is written
    by me and I have tested it on another computer running the same OS and
    version of WLM with perfect results.

    If anyone could give me some idea of why the COM interface
    (Messenger.UIAutomation.1) isn't working on this computer, I would greatly
    appreciate it!

    Greetings,

    Is Windows Messenger (not Live) installed on this PC too? If not, grab and install from here
    first:

    I installed it with the link you provided and I then tested it with no
    success, I tried re-installing WLM, but again, no success.

    Any other ideas?

    Hi Oliver,

    Ah. Well I hate to push you elsewhere but there is a specific forum for these problems with
    specific Windows Live Developer MVPs and they may be more helpful to you:

    Sorry about that.
