Openoffice ole object Free

Postby Rosinha » Tue Mar 24, 2015 2:10 pm

I have created an openoffice ole object from my application using Delphi.
That is shown below:-

OpenOffice : Variant;

OpenOffice := CreateOleObject('');

It is getting created successfully.But when i try to free it,it still remains in task manager.
I tried the following commands to free openoffice but with no success:

openoffice := Unassigned;

Is there any other solution for this?

Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure how this stuff works in Delphi, but you might try something like OpenOffice.dispose, or however one executes a method. I also assume the variable names are case sensitive, and your example is inconsistent in that regard.

Get from my personal web site : Delphi 7 OOo tool
The zip file contains units with helper routines, examples, and a HowTo document. Read it.

You should have posted your question in section : Macros and UNO API > External Programs

Maybe the code that deallocates the memory used by the OO process doesn't also inform Windows that OO has been closed?
See for instance ... bject.html , specifically

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
  { Closes Microsoft Word. }
