    getprocaddress didn't load coinitialize

    I am working to load CoInitialize using getprocaddress, but I don't know why this function fail and cash program! It didn't happen with other functions in other libraries like kernel32.dll. Here is my test :

    typedef HRESULT (*pf)(LPVOID);
    pf rf = (pf)GetProcAddress(LoadLibrary(ole32.dll), "CoInitialize"); 
    CoInitialize(NULL); // This line crashes the program!!
    Do you know why and how to properly load it ?

    Re: getprocaddress didn't load coinitialize

    If you directly call CoInitialize then why do you need to LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress?
    Besides, you have to check the return values of every API call before you use it in the next code stuff
