Hi everybody,

I'm currently working an better implementation of OLE component under Wine. The aim is to be able to insert OLE document in PowerPoint for example.

I've already made a lot of work, but it still doesn't work and I have no idea to solve the problem. Before my work, inserting a OLE component in PowerPoint raise an error "unavailable server". 
Now, the server application is correctly launched, but no component is inserted, and I don't see relevant information in the trace log. No error. Everything seems ok, but nothing is inserted.

So, I would like to know if there is somebody who is also working on this subject and / or if someone could help me to find the problem. I have to make a patch to include my modifications. I will do it as soon as possible.

For my tests, I'm using Microsoft Office 2003, because it is running under Wine ^^.

I precise that the purpose of my works is to implement a default proxy/stub for Ole interfaces like IOleObject .
