i cant seem to create a directplay object and i have no idea why not... if( FAILED( CoCreateInstance( CLSID_DirectPlay8Peer, NULL, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, IID_IDirectPlay8Peer, (LPVOID*) &g_pDP ) ) ) { MessageBox(hWnd,"Failed Creating the IDirectPlay8Peer Object", "FATAL ERROR", MB_OK); return E_FAIL; } i keep getting the error message as above. Any ideas what it is? Scotty.

I would guess you have not initialized COM before making this call. Put:


Some where in your one time setup code. And don''t forgot to call CoUninitialize(); during your cleanup.

If that doesn''t help, exactly what error code is CoCreate returning?
