Does anyone know if GUIDs are generated in Win32s.  I know they are not in Win16, and are in Win32, and I've created them with CoCreateGuid in win32s, but it isn't an actual GUID, just a piece of it.  So I'd basically like confirmaation that either they don't work in win32s or that they do work and I'm doing something wrong!  ;)  Thanks.

Russ,

Yes, they do work. I'm not sure which compiler you have, but if you have Borland C++ 4.x, take a look at the OLE examples. One of them does create a GUID.
