A recent patch by Rob Shearman has caused two Adobe installers to
crash when they try to load up a WebBrowser control to display a EULA:

ole32: Re-structure OleCreate to match to order of calls that native does.

Get rid of hres1 since all failures are returned. Cleanup pUnk on
failure and make sure to return NULL in ppvObj.

We get the following backtrace:

epic_eula calls OleCreate.  OleCreate calls
shdocvw:PersistStorage_InitNew which returns E_NOTIMPL.  The new
version of OleCreate handles the error and sets pUnk to NULL and
returns the error value.  epic_eula doesn't check the return value for
an error or check if pUnk is NULL.  When the dialog loads up,
epic_eula tries to use pUnk and we crash.  Note that Rob's patch is
correct and shouldn't be changed.  Making PersistStorage_InitNew
return S_OK fixes the problem, but I don't know if that is acceptable
or not.  The real solution is to implement PersistStorage.  What are
people's thoughts on this?  Is it OK to return S_OK for now?
