Has anyone seen this error:

An exception occurred when instantiating a COM object.
The cause of this exception was that: java.lang.RuntimeException: Can not use native code: Initialisation failed.

@LajuanTaylor - Links often break over time. Best to include a brief summary of the issue as well as a link.

@Rad1 - You didn't mention whether your o/s is 32 or 64 bit, but as mentioned in LajuanTaylor's link - COM is only supported in the 32 bit versions.
@agx - Very true... I ran into some broken links today. LOL

That is very true.  Thank you LajuanTaylor!!!

I have also found limitations of running ColdFusion as a 64-bit application- see link below
- ColdFusion COM Interoperability is not supported.

Thank you!!!

@Rad1 - Thanks. That's good to know about the 64Bit limitation. I'm in the middle of configuring Win2012 Servers and haven't decided if I am going to install CF11 or stay at CF10...

I just came across the following link from Adobe:
ColdFusion 10 Update 11 (release date, July 9 2013) includes support for 64-bit COM interoperability
>> includes support for 64-bit COM interoperability

Good to know! I'd missed that one.
