You need to connect to some office application via ole (say, to word), what do we do in this case? It's simple, put the

CreateOleObject works fine. But we don’t stop there - again we climb into Delphi XE, open the recompiled project - and again everything is great. No new modules are connected, what is happening is not clear.
That is, in the end everything works, but surely this could be achieved by other methods. I would like to know what I am doing wrong and what to do. OS - Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (if that matters).
