 GetObject() vs ActiveX DLL/EXE

I have a very funny problem. I'd like to have a one instance of an object on
the client machine that serves all other objects. By other words, I have
"CommonSettings" object that can set and return appropriate settings to the
caller. I have a lot of ActiveX DLL components and main Standrd EXE project
running on the client. From the main project I set all the settings and want
to access these settings from the other components.

I tried to make a single use ActiveX EXE and do GetObject() to it from every
component. But it always creates a new instance so the settings are not set.

HELP PLEASE! How to resolve this problem?

I haven't tried it myself, but I was looking at doing something similar the
other day until I came across this in the GetObject reference in VB help
(last sentence):

You can't use GetObject to obtain a reference to a class created with
Visual Basic.

This may or may not be the cause of your problems -- GetObject could simply
act like CreateObject all the time when the referenced object was created
with VB.  Hope this helps.
