I tried to write a ATL DLL, which is accessed from Basic. However, this code is not working (I try to return some CStrings to Basic):

STDMETHODIMP CCRSData::GetInfos(BSTR *pDateSaved...)
{
     CComBSTR DateSaved(m_CRSInfos.DateSaved);
    *pDateSaved = BSTR(DateSaved);
return S_OK;
}

CComBSTR deletes the BSTR again.
Try this

STDMETHODIMP CCRSData::GetInfos(BSTR *pDateSaved...)
{
     CComBSTR DateSaved(m_CRSInfos.DateSaved);
    *pDateSaved = SysAllocString(DateSaved);
return S_OK;
}
