"Colnitialize has not been called"

Any ideas what this is or rather how to fix it!

Cheers

Colnitialize is used to initialize COM before you can create and use COM objects.

The enterprise manager probably saves the copied data as a COM object and in order to paste it the target application will need to use COM, but the creator of that application (you maybe?) has forgotten to initialize COM before trying to access the clipboard data.

Alas it was not me it was Microsoft.  My enterprise manage has worked for months and suddenly stopped.  Maybe I will try and reinstall.

Thanks for the explanation

Cheers
