I am implementing a COM Server
In this server was implementing IUnknown and IClassFactory
interfaces.
I register server object in the Running Object Table with a moniker and pointer to the IClassFactory interface:

LPMONIKER            lpMon;
DWORD                dwReg;
WCHAR            lpszDelim[MAX_PATH];
WCHAR            lpszItem[MAX_PATH];

       MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, MB_PRECOMPOSED, "!", -1,
                                                     lpszDelim, MAX_PATH);
       MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, MB_PRECOMPOSED,                                                     "Name1", -1,lpszItem, MAX_PATH);

     CreateItemMoniker(lpszDelim, lpszItem, &lpMon);
     GetRunningObjectTable(0, &lpRot);
     if(lpRot->IsRunning(lpMon) == S_OK)
         {
             MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, MB_PRECOMPOSED,                                                            "Name2", -1,lpszItem, MAX_PATH);
            CreateItemMoniker(lpszDelim, lpszItem, &lpMon);
         }
    lpRot->Register(0, (IUnknown *)&classfactory,lpMon, &dwReg);
  .....                                          lpMon, &dwReg);
  .....

In the client application I want to get a server object via it moniker
from Running Object Table:

LPMONIKER            lpMon;
DWORD                dwReg;
WCHAR            lpszDelim[MAX_PATH];
WCHAR            lpszItem[MAX_PATH];

       MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, MB_PRECOMPOSED, "!", -1,
                                                     lpszDelim, MAX_PATH);
       MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, MB_PRECOMPOSED,                                                     "Name1", -1,lpszItem, MAX_PATH);

     GetRunningObjectTable(0, &lpRot);
     if(lpRot->IsRunning(lpMon) == S_OK)
       {
          lpRot->GetObject(lpMon, &punk);
          pcf = (LPCLASSFACTORY)punk;
          hr = pcf->CreateInstance(NULL, IID_IUnknown,                                                             (LPVOID*)&punk);
        }

In spite of that pointer to object is not NULL I got Access Violation
when I try to use this pointer. So I don't get a right pointer.
What is a mistake ?
What can I do for geting pointer to one definity COM server object when same COM server (whith same CLSID) is running more than
once?

There are many win32 functions that get certain information and store the information in a buffer. But the buffer size is unknow at the first time the function is called. So for these functions, they should be called twice. The buffer size is obtained at the first time, then memory is allocated to the buffer. At the second time, buffer has enough space to store information. Otherwise, violation may occur because unauthorized memory address is read or written. Your problem is in this case. So try to do as I suggest. Pls tell me if there is more questions.
