Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E0939: Glink.GlinkApi method '~' of object '~' failure

Product: Glink 7.2
Platform: All Windows
Status: Fixed for 7.2.1
Last updated: 2003-11-17 07:28:13

Due to a change in the Glink 7.2.0 type library, GlinkApi
programs compiled with earlier versions of Glink, using 'early
binding' will give a run-time error when executed with Glink

  VB programs will fail with  : "method '~' of object '~' failure"
  Delphi progs will fail with : "OLE error C0000005"

Here is a summary of GlinkApi backward compatibility:

    VB progs 7.1.0-7.1.3 will work Glink's 7.1.0-7.1.3
    VB progs 7.1.4       will work Glink's 7.1.4
    VB progs 7.1.5-7.1.6 will work Glink's 7.1.5-7.1.6 (and above)

    VB progs 7.2.0       will work Glink's 7.2.0

After the 7.2.1 fix,

    VB progs 7.1.5-7.1.6, 7.2.1 will work Glink's 7.1.5 and above
                                          (except 7.2.0)

Note that programs compiled with newer versions of Glink will
not work with older Glinks if methods are called that were not
implemented in that release. Please refer to the "What's new"
section of the Glink on-line help for details of GlinkApi

Work-around, use 'late binding' rather than 'early binding'. The
following VB code shows late binding of the GlinkApi object:

  Dim glapi as Object
  Set glapi = CreateObject("Glink.GlinkApi")
