I've got a COM server written in VC++ 5.0 with ATL whose target client is applications written in VB.  What I would love to do is throw an exception from the COM component and have standard error handling in VB be able to trap it.  This approach isn't working.  I'm having a hard time finding any documentation on this issue.  Please help.

You need to make sure your server has the ISupportErrorInfo interface. You can use the checkbox in the Object Wizard Attributes tab.

Once you have that, you can call CComCoClass::Error() to create an EXCEPINFO object. Then you must also return a proper error code (for example, E_FAIL).
