Threading Models in OLE-DB

Using VC++6.0 I've created an ATL project and added an OLE DB template data provider.  The default registration is for Apartment threading.

What can be done to change this code to Free Threading or Both.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In your inheritance heirarchy, ATL will inherit CComObjectRootEx.  Instead of accepting the default template parameter of CComSingleThreadModel you can manually change it to CComMultiThreadModel.  This will change your threading model to what you want.  COM/DCOM can put your component in its own STA or an MTA since you're guaranteeing that it provides its own synchronization to global resources.
