in reply to Windows OLE in Perl, System Restore

the return from CreateRestorePoint is undef.

What do you get if you print $^E? eg.:

use strict; use Win32::OLE('in'); use constant wbemFlagReturnImmediately => 0x10; use constant wbemFlagForwardOnly => 0x20; my $res = Win32::OLE->GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\.\\root\\default:Systemr +estore") or warn "WMI connection failed.\n"; my $test = $res->CreateRestorePoint("New Restore Point", 0, 100) or die "CRP failed with: $^E"; print "$test";
