Com interfaces build in DotNet?

P: n/a
Hi -

I know that this is a naive newbe question...

But I need to create a DotNet "something" that can be discovered
via a Com interface, and I'm not sure what type of "whatever" I
need to be making (or what to do with it when I'm done)

I have XP Pro and Studio 2005 (so I know this should be able to be
done), but there are so many options of things to create and I'm not
sure which type of what is for what. (A bit overwhelmed)

I have another piece of software that can "interrogate installed COM
exposed applications" and I've been tasked with creating the COM
side of an API so we can show/test the two things working together.

Any and ALL help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Chip

Hi,

Make sure the class is marked as com visible.
