I have a server .EXE file done in C++ (MFC) that is located on one machine.  i want to access this .EXE from several different client machines (from client programs, using DCOM).  I have been told that in order to do this, I have to register the CLSID, APPID, and proxy/stub ID's for the interface methods in each client machine.  how do I do this without registerign the entire server application on every client machine?

You need to use the DCOM utility DCOMCNFG.EXE. Get the book "Inside COM" written by Dale Rogerson from Microsoft Press, which contains very good description on how to do it.

Thank you...Everybody kept giving me a long rundown of everything i had to register...etc, and yesterday I bought a very good book by Richard Grimes, called "Professional DCOM programming", which if you get another question about DCOM you might want to recommend to somebody.Again, thanks
