I am trying to make work the autodemo and memoedit examples from delphi 3.0. The memoedit app is registered on the server side. In autodemo, I have the line .CreateRemote('ServerName'). When I start the client app, I don't see his window on my screen, but the memoedit app have started on the server machine. What is the problem?

Yo,
with DCOM, you can start COM servers on remote machines, but you are *not* able to see their window. Also, on the client machine (if NT), the DCOM server is started on a hidden window station.
Any output of the DCOM server has to go over procedural interfaces and visiualized by the client/controller.
