To answer your questions:
What steps have you taken to verify that this error message reflects reality?
I think there is enoug disk and memory. Refer my previous answer.
I don't believe the message reflects reality. But I don't know why I would get a spurious message if the script deoes the right thing.
Re: What steps have you taken to remedy this error condition?
I googled the message and did not find a similar experience. The error is reported in different circumstances. Seems to indicate that others have been able to install Win32::OLE under cygwin.
I used Win32::OLE under XP, Excel 200? and cygwin. Installed without issues. So maybe there is something about Win 7 or Excel 2010
I tried the script in the debugger. I posted the Trace. I also checked variable values. They look normal, although I have no definitive idea what the values should be and the perl constructs used are beyond my expeience.
I have no idea how to progress this further.
