cdbxpcmd E_FAIL ... from a COM component on XP SP2

Recommended Posts

Guest robpitt

Latest version v4.3.2 (cdbxpcmd.exe 4.1.4.2140) on an XP SP2 machine.

cdbxpcmd.exe --burn-data -file:C:\test.txt -iso:C:\test.iso

reports:

An error occured while executing the command: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component

Running it under a debugger suggests the StarWave component may be unhappy:

StarWave_CoInitialize(): CoInitialize( NULL ) failed, status -2147417850 ( 0x80010106 )

A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in cdbxpcmd.exe

BTW, pretty sure this is because the machine in question doesn't have a DVD drive at all.

(Wanted to make ISOs on this machine)

CDBXPP.exe works fine though ... it's just the command line tool CDBXPPCmd.exe that fails.

Hi Flo,

I did try enabling the logging but after failing the log doesn't contain any useful information, it just ends saying:

StarBurn:StarBurn_DownShut(): EXITing with success

However it's very easy to reproduce the fault

On any version of Windows just temporarily disable all your DVD drives in Device Manager and run

cdbxpcmd.exe --burn-data -file:C:\test.txt -iso:C:\test.iso

That will fail miserably.

PS note that your latest 4.3.7.2374 setup program still contains a cdbxpcmd.exe with version info 4.1.4.2374, I don't know whether that's somethnig for you to worry about).

Cheers.

Rob
