Could not initialize OLE (error 80010106)

This message is displayed in the developer consoles by IronPDF when initializing outside of a Windows Forms / WPF application.

It displays in the console of .Net Core web applications and in any Console Application. What is it?

What is this error, is this software broken?

This message is sent from the embedded Google Chrome based web browser to let us know that no visible browser window will be shown. That is our intended functionality.

This message is a price we must pay for importing such a large and powerful HTML rendering engine.

Sadly, we can not yet get rid of this message, but it is totally harmless. There is no error, and your application is working as intended.
