Technical overview

In Microsoft Windows operating systems, the Microsoft COM technology enables software components communicate with other software components. You can use Microsoft COM technology to create reusable software components. You can also develop applications by linking these components together and take advantage of Windows services.

Out-of-process server objects are implemented in an executable file and are run in a separate process space.

Note For more information about how to create the sample application and how to deploy the sample application, see the Readme.txt file that is included in the download package.
