COM Object returning COM Object Reference
I have been able to build a model of what I need to do using VB
components...but unsuccessful when attempting to use ATL which is required
since the one component must run as a System Service. I am looking for an
ATL sample that would demonstrate how to do the following:
I have an ActiveX.exe which instantiates a COM object. (Call it ObjectA)
It exposes a property which is the reference to the COM object. (call it
You have a VB client which instantiates the ActiveX.exe (ObjectA).
Thus the client can say something like:
Dim MyObjectA as New ObjectA
Dim MyObjectB as ObjectB
When attempting to implement ObjectA in ATL we always end up with the
ObjectB property returning an Automation Error.
Any and all suggestions and pointers to a sample bit of code greatly
welcomed and appreciated.
