jcb: No, nor will applying undef to your globals fix the problem. The problem is that, somewhere in your code, a Win32::OLE object handle is getting corrupted, and the destructor in Win32::OLE::Lite is finding that a resource it is supposed to release is not there and complaining about this state of affairs.

So you havent heard of global destruction phase? Super Search cures what ails ya

    Using undef will merely move the error from the end of the output to the middle of the output. The DESTROY method will be called at some time, and the only solution is to ensure that the object is valid when it is called.

    A small addition: if the corruption is occurring due to the undefined order in which global destruction is carried out, releasing the last reference prior to global destruction will resolve the problem. But you do not know that that is the case — there could be a bug in the questioner's program that is corrupting the object or global destruction may be trashing it before destroying Win32::OLE::Lite. You. Do. Not. Know. Which. Is. Happening. Here.

      At the end of the output you can't do nothing about it :) in the middle you can

        What? If anything it is easier to chop off of the end by adding an end marker to the intended output and using sed to remove anything after that marker. Oh wait, our questioner is using Windows and therefore probably does not have sed installed.

        And why did writing this feel like answering Insane Troll Logic?
