Delphi MIDAS and threaded client requests

Hi,

I am writing a report server using D3 MIDAS and want a thread in the client to handle the DCOM requests. I want the thread to send the requests from a que one at a time and wait for a response on the server. This way the client can still submit further requests without being "held up" with the current request running.

I wrote this and got it working without threads. Now I am trying to thread the MIDAS requests and whenever I call a method on the application sever in the execute code of my thread I get.

EOleSysError : Coinitialize has not been called.

Can you send MIDAS calls in a background thread from the client ? and if so How ?

If you use threads, you MUST call coInitialize in the initialization section of EVERY individal thread (and coUnititialize in the finalization sections.
Imho, you should not use os threading, but com threading for a midas solution. Take a look at this site, it contains a midas example of what you want to achieve.
