OleInitialize function returns S_FALSE why?

With the following piece of code OleInitialize function is always returning 1. I want to know, what I am missing out here. In VC++ it retuns 0.


Option Explicit
Private Const S_OK As Long = 0
Private Const S_FALSE As Long = 1

Private Declare Function OleInitialize Lib "ole32.dll" (ByVal pvReserved As Long) As Long
Private Declare Sub OleUninitialize Lib "ole32.dll" ()

Private Sub Form_Click()
Dim Handle As Long

Handle = OleInitialize(0)
Select Case Handle
    Case S_OK
        MsgBox "The library was initialized successfully."
    Case S_FALSE
        MsgBox "The OLE library is already initialized"
End Select
OleUninitialize
End Sub

Use OLEUnintialize before
Handle = OleInitialize(0)
