Using OLE Automation

Here is what I have so far...

IDispatch*      pDisp = NULL;
CLSID            CLSID_BackWeb;

CLSIDFromProgID(OLESTR("BackWeb"),&CLSID_BackWeb);
Hr =CoCreateInstance(CLSID_BackWeb,NULL,CLSCTX_SERVER,IID_IDispatch,(void**)&pDisp);

What I want to do now is access a specific Interface called IBackWeb.  From that I will call a method that will return another object interface called IBackWebChannelCollection.  Then I will obtain an IBackWebChannel from the ChannelCollection.

How do I access this specific interface?

Thanks,
   Blake

Assuming CoCreateInstance() succeeded(), you can use

  IBackWeb* ibw = NULL;
  hr = pDisp->QueryInterface(IID_IBackWeb, (void**)&ibw);
  if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
  {
    // Use IBackWeb here
    IBackWebChannel* iChannel = NULL;
    iChannel = ibw->ReturnMeABackWebChannel();
    // Use iChannel here
  }

The compiler is not finding IBackWeb as a type and it is not finding IID_IBackWeb.  What would be causing this?

You likely are not including the output from the compiling the .odl file in your server into your client's project.  Compiling the .odl file in the server will produce 2 files (a GUIDS.h and a *_i.c file).  You need to set up the project (project setttings for the .odl file so these files are created).  The client should then know about these interfaces.
