I wrote a Hello.idl and compiled it with idltojava and it worked fine.  When I try to compile Hello.idl with Microsofts Visual C++'s midl.exe it gave me errors.  Why is this so?  I thought i should  be ablt to converted idl files to either java or C++.

What does your .idl file look like? It should be sth. like

[ uuid (53D5C100-25F6-11D1-B64C-000012df6b3e),
  version(1.0),
  pointer_default(unique)
]
interface Hello
{
}
