Agreed, it is definately not possible on a higher level. It depends on the kind of implementation.
If you want to use OLE services with the object, the answer is no. If you just want to use the object on your own WITHOUT any calls to OLE32.dll (e.g. marshalling to out-of-process servers), it is possible.

OLE does the following to initiate a COM object:
- looks up the CLSID in the registry and find the corresponding in-process-server where the object resists in (e.g. xyz.dll)
- Calls LoadLibrary to bind to that module (xyz.dll)
- Binds to its exported functions
  DllCanUnloadNow
  and
  DllGetClassObject
- Calls DllGetClassObject to retreive a pointer to the corresponding IClassFactory COM object
- Calls IClassFactory.CreateInstance to get the object

In background, DllCanUnloadNow is permanently called and the module is unloaded when the function succeeds.

Hope this helps,

Yes. If you have an instance of the corresponding IClassFactory object, call its CreateInstance with that interface ID.
