using COM

Hello,

I am having trouble with COM. (Who's not?) But my problem is not the language it self, but I get an error message,

Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: com in /home/web/com.php


How do I know if my server can run COM?

Doesn't it suppose to run COM, also what is DCOM?

thank you,

someone new to COM & DCOM.

    The server is Linux, php 4.2, and Apache 2.0

    Does this means there's no hope?
    I just read in the online manual
    "COM functions are only available for the Windows version of PHP."

    thank you

    COM is a microsoft technology, so it is only available on Windows.

    DCOM is Distributed COM, it allows software component located on different networked computers to communicate with each other.

    I believe DCOM is considered old and depricated and it is recommended to use .NET instead. .NET can be used on linux using mono (http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page)
