Can I create a COM out-of-process server with just C# 4.0 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I don't know much about COM or C++, so perhaps these are silly questions:

    1) Without resorting to a C++/ATL wrapper program, can I make an out-of-process C#/.net 4.0 application that's callable via COM from traditional COM clients?   (I don't need to call in to COM. Only to be called.)

    2) Is there anything new in .NET 4.0 & VS2010 that would make this easier vs. 3.5 & VS2008?

    3) The tutorials I can find _all_ seem to assume a strong working knowledge of C++/ATL and/or COM internals.  Does anyone know of a resource that only assumes C# knowledge, and then explains the further technology I need to know? 

    Thank you 

    P.S.  I have seen  http://www.codeproject.com/KB/COM/BuildCOMServersInDotNet.aspx and http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-GB/csharpgeneral/thread/38452bc2-d52b-4ca4-9cde-c7702786a861, but again, these are people who assume knowledge of COM in a C++ environment.
