Error al recuperar un generador de clases COM (Debido al error 80040111)

    General discussion

  • Hi to everyone!

    I finished migrating a project from VS6 to VS2005. I have compiled my DLL and all it registers successfully.  But when I try to use it in C#, I get this exception:

    An unhandled exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in WindowsApplication3.exe

    Additional information: Error al recuperar un generador de clases COM para el componente con CLSID {...} debido al siguiente error: 80040111.

    Thanx a lot...

    This is interesting; I'm not familiar with this error message.


    Can you instantiate the object using an unmanaged client such as VB6? Can you instantiate it using OLEVIEW?

  • I can instantiate it with OLEVIEW...

  • If you can instantiate it with OLEVIEW, then it is probably registered correctly. I'm guessing your C# client is coded incorrectly.


    You need to post some code.
