ActiveX/COM Problem

I'm creating a chartfx component in a in proc com server:
      m_Chart.Create("ChartFx", WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD | WS_BORDER, aRect, this, IDR_CHART1);
      m_Chart.SetType(SCATTER | CT_TRACKMOUSE | CT_COLORLINE | CT_PAINTMARKER | CT_TOOL);
      m_Chart.SetWindowPos(0, 0, 0, aRect.Width(), aRect.Height(), SWP_NOMOVE | SWP_NOZORDER);

when I close the app, here's the call stack:
NTDLL! 77f76148()
NTDLL! 77f8a8b9()
NTDLL! 77f83209()
KERNEL32! 77f11ad0()

When I QueryInterface I do a Release so the reference count should be 1.

I'm doing the same with formula1 and have no problems.  

Anyone know why the ReleaseDispatch() is being called before any of the destructor methods?

When you do a QueryInterface(), which interface do you release?

VolSurface * CVolatilityCtl::GetETSControl(      IUnknown* pUnk, ISnapInMarketSet** ppETSCtrl)

      if (!pUnk || pUnk->QueryInterface(IID_IMarketSet_SnapIn, (LPVOID*) ppETSCtrl) != S_OK)
            return NULL;

I think there's a problem in this code:

  m_pVolSurf = GetETSControl(lpUnk, &lpContext);
  lpContext->Release();

You are calling GetETSControl() to retrieve the IID_IMarketSet_SnapIn interface. However, as soon as the GetETSControl function returns, you are release the interface that was returned. The code should be

  m_pVolSurf = GetETSControl(lpUnk, &lpContext);
  lpUnk->Release();  // << new stuff here
  lpUnk = NULL; // << new stuff here

I think this is what you want.
